I am Aimé is a men’s shirt, adapted to suit women. I feature all the makings of the classic men’s shirt; the button placket on the left, the tower placket at the cuff and the shirt collar, whilst adapting to more feminine styles with 3 other lengths, a slim collar and a slimmer sleeve. I have a back yoke to reinforce the shoulders, and I can be sewn with or without a centre back pleat. My curved hem shape is the perfect finishing touch to this great classic.

A sew along tutorial to sew the tower placket is available on the blog.
