I have this pattern, but the thought of the time required by those overlapped seams is daunting! Your solution is a good one, but maybbe requires a lot of measuring and pressing to get a nice even 1/4" overlap? I think that I will use the nice long basting stitch on my Brother machine to sew a 5/8" seam, press, then sew your 1/2" seam, topstitch, and then remove the basting thread. Looking forward to a picture of your final result!

Almost finished with this one...made in ploy crepe with charmeuse for bias seam binding. Trickiest part is the sleeve facings; had to use my own technique for those. Also pattern calls for bound buttonholes for 1/2" buttons...I knew that I couldn't do ones that small and have them all exactly alike so did machine ones. I also did machine topstitching instead of hand topstitching about 1/8" from edge instead of 1/4. I think I will make this shirt again in a heavy silk crepe.

The picture needs to enlarge and it does not. Cannot see the garment close up enough.
