// The Bloom Shirt + Dress is a modern take on a classic button-down shirt, with a shirt and dress view, as well as three collar options, and is designed to compliment your existing wardrobe. It features a casual a-line shape with a subtle swing through the body, a back yoke, front button placket and patch pocket, collar and stand, and long sleeves with button cuffs and placket. The Dress view also features side seam pockets and a deep hem. There are three collar options, which can be matched to both the shirt and dress views. Collar option 1 is a classic pointed collar and stand. Collar option 2 is a half penny collar and stand. Collar option 3 is an exaggerated box pleated collar with a narrow stand. The pattern also offers a sleeve length shortening indication line, if you wish to customise for each season! #TFSBloomShirt#TFSBloomDress
