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

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.

I'm thinking of making this shirt too. Can you show us a bigger picture?

I also have this patternbut am waiting until I have a good deal of time to devote to doing it properly - wish I could see yours larger than the thumb print - thanks for the review

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!
