Does anyone have a recommendation for a pattern for a women's shirt that buttons down just partway? Something like this top from J Crew.

So far, the only thing close I've found is Simplicity 3786 and it looks nice but not quite right... no button placket, etc.

Here's one from Kwiksew, but it's for knits. You could use just the opening, neckline and collar and combine it with a pattern for a woven if you wanted to use a woven for the blouse.

Here's two from Butterick:
B5612
B5218

And from Hot Patterns:

But this is probably the closest to what you want:
HP Superfantastic Shirt

If you have David Coffin's shirt book, he has directions for using a modified sleeve placket to add a placket to almost any button front shirt. I did this and it came out very nice. Just cut your blouse front with a fold at the center front. I think I needed to make the collar a little shorter - there's a little fiddling involved so making up a small sample first may be worth your while. Also, you need a pattern that's loose enough to slip on with only a couple of the top buttons unbuttoned.

Thank you! That HP Superfantastic Shirt looks really close.

But, I also really like the idea of modifying a pattern I already have. I'll check out the shirt book.

I made Burda Style 7198 out of a great blue linen, and it is very easy and comfortable, with good fit, and a nice placket for fun buttons.

Have fun!
