Thanks for your review. Obviously, this is already a favourite of yours. I have just purchased this pattern and the reviews have been very helpful. There seems to be a consensus on the sleeve placket. I will do a proper one. Personally, I think there are better yoke treatments and this one would likely be confusing to a new sewer. I am going to make a double band because I don’t like the idea of folded interfacing. If you’ve never had interfacing shift or twist inside a band, you are in for a nightmare and big disappointment. Since you’ve already cut yours out, I would suggest top stitching to ensure the interfacing stays flat, especially if you want to wash and wear. I was impressed you took the time and trouble to support your lace. If mine’s a good fit, it will become my main pattern - one from which all others are made. When you get a good fit bodice and a clean sleeve and shoulder you are happy with, you can do anything - change collars, necklines, finishes etc. The fabric store said they’ve had good response to Simplicity’s Amazing Fit series. When I saw the nice shoulder, loose neckband and the C cup I was sold. I just don’t totally like some of their treatment. I am a traditionalist though. If I spend the time to make something, I want it to function and look nice, not have buggery sleeve openings and twisted interfacing etc. Good luck with your next ones. Will watch for your reviews.

Great review - I'm just separating the tissue for this pattern today. I'll try the Threads placket method for sure. I'm using a brushed cotton plaid for this shirt - hope it behaves!
