Whatever the method, Scheri, I think your plackets looks great!

Thanks to Pam Howard and thanks to Pam Off the Cuff.(one of my favorite sites. I hope Pam OFC does a video-that is how I learn best and then I read the text.

Hi Scheri, while I respect the teacher...the method she shows is more like a "home-sewing" method that a professional one. None of the many Professioanal Shirt-makers I know, ** ever ** use a placket with that little roof-top "triangle peak". We use 2 seaparate rectangular pieces that are torn so that we know they are on striaght grain. But..as with anything else, if this works for you, wonderful! One of these days I'll show how it's done by 99.9% of the pros who make shirts for a living, every single day. FYI, my comment is NOT a dis of P. Howard's method...we all have different experiences.
