Yesterday I made my first button up shirt with a collar! I'm so excited! It turned out really well - instructions were easy to follow - It was NewLook Simplicity 6407 - say's Easy on it (which is why I bought it) and it really was! I also made a dress - and a t-shirt - Busy weekend - but really proud of my collard shirt with buttons

Button up shirts are about my favorite thing to sew --- watch out, it is a slippery slope, you might wind up making shirts for everyone in your family and circle of friends. Congrats on mastering a sometimes challenging series of sewing tasks.

Great looking shirt. I love the feeling I get when I sew something and it turns out really well.
I have to agree making shirts can become addicting.
