Thank you so much for mentioning the instruction of the placket, I will go back to the previous issue as you say when I try this pattern. CUTE cute top!

Sewcrazy53, Thanks for your comment. It is not difficult at all to add allowances to BWOF. You do have to trace each pattern (from a master sheet with many overlapping patterns each indicated with a different color) to add allowance you could cut with a rotary cutter with an arm. I just measure five eights around and connect the dots. The one thing worth mentioning is that there are no pictures in BWOF instructions. I think that gives you a free 1st issue when you subscribe. Give em a try, i have really grown fond of BWOF!

Cute cuffs. Congrats!! Was it difficult adding the seam allowances? I have NEVER worked with BWOF patterns. Someone let me know.

Very cute tunic. This one caught my eye too, but I've never done a placket either and don't have the previous issue!
