Bellis Short Sleeve Shirt
Emily's first collection featured a shirt made from a woman's dress. That pattern is replicated here with this shirt, which draws its print inspiration from a feedsack pattern circa 1930s-1940s.
Feedsacks originally held everything from flour, animal feed, and rice to coffee, beans, and sugar, and there is record of their being sewn into clothing as far back as the early 1920s. Companies changed their prints often to appeal to customers and make them more suitable for clothing. Many prints were invented this way—florals like this one, but also plaids, checks, and novelty prints.
This shirt, in a pink carnation floral, features patch pockets and a straight hem.
