Clean lines, minimalistic details and a slightly boxy shape – the Onyx shirt is the perfect garment for warm summer days. It is designed for medium to lightweight woven fabrics and is perfect for showing off beautiful prints. In a plain fabric this shirt will quickly become an easy to combine summer wardrobe staple.

There are multiple options to customize the look you want. View A is a shirt length with a high neckline. It has short sleeves and cuffs. An epaulet and button hold up the cuffs. View B is a cropped top with a scoop neckline and narrow waist darts for shaping. However, sleeves, cuffs and necklines are interchangeable between views.

Both views are boxy but slightly curved at the waist for a more feminine definition. They also have high–low hems, the cropped version more exaggerated than the shirt version. The dropped shoulder extends just past the shoulder line, providing a different silhouette than a standard T–shirt.

There is an add-on available for this pattern: the Onyx Sleeve Pack. Even more options for your Onyx with a 3/4 and a long sleeve with optional cuffs.
