EK715 Silverlake Shirt

"This super-comfy (and super-easy!) shirt is knit in reverse stockinette stitch," says Dempsey. "The seams are on the outside for detail. The Silverlake Shirt can be casual or dressy, depending on your choice of yarn." This is a masterpiece of simplicity in two gauges. It is plain, austerely elegant, deconstructed; all lines are straight and pure. Shoulders are drop. The back as well as the front is in two pieces, so there are no vast segments to dampen the ardour of a beginner, and it won't even matter terribly much if your sewing isn't perfect. This is a wardrobe mainstay. To crown all, this hemp yarn should be machine washed and dried, and gets softer and softer the more you do it.
