Your shirt is quite lovely and very flattering in a shirting fabric ~ While it is not a recent pattern, it certainly is a really great pattern so I am not sure why they would discontinue such a nice pattern`( they have dc this pattern I had to search for it, tho it remains on the SW gallery for inspiration which originally put me on a search for it ) I really love what you did w the plaid, it looks so cute and so fun on you, I think it is a very versatile pattern worth making more than once~ thank you for the inspiration, I do so love this in a check , so so cute! You did a lovely job sewing it also~

How cute are you in this version of the Hibiscus! The checks are so fun and the shirt looks perfectly wearable with a variety of pants or skirts. I love it.

I was inspired to make mine because of your version, Martha. :) Really nice. I like it in the plaid.
