I made this shirt with a polyester blend material I had in my stash. The only change from the pattern I made was short-sleeves. I don't wear long-sleeves too often. I started with a 10" sleeve, and once I had the shirt wearable, I cut the sleeves to the length I thought looked good.
This is the second Simplicity pattern I have used that that instructs the burrito method for finishing the yoke. This is such an easy way and gives a professional look.
I used my Wilson Rotary to make this shirt. I also used my white buttonholer. This machine being straight-stitch only makes impeccable stitches. Plus it is smooth and quiet for being some 70 years old. The buttonholer made beautiful buttonholes.
Speaking of buttons, I purchase several colors of buttons from Wawak.com. A gross of buttons for $2.45 is quite a bargain.
I used a piece of burgundy fabric for the collar stand.
First time I used a pattern with this button-tab on back. Plus, no darts on the back.
Thanks for stopping.
