It looks to me that you did better than you thought on using this fabric; the result is just gorgeous! The placement looks just right. Thank you for passing the information about adding long sleeves. It is a very pretty shirt.

A very pretty fabric and nice review. Threads magazine has an article in their last issue showing how to do a round back adjustment without making a center back seam. I am going to try it and see how it works

Absolutely fabulous shirt! And I agree - buttonhole chisels are the only way to go.

What spectacular fabric - it works beautifully for this shirt. I'll join you in hating that facing method. Nice to know I'm not the only one who can't get them to cooperate. Beautiful.

Fabulous! I wouldn't have known about the centr back seam if you hadn't talked about it. As for darts, I have learned from looking at myself in pictures that less fitted actually looks better!

The pattern photo is misleading isn't it. I didn't realise this was a fitted (or semi-fitted) shirt. Yours is very nice.

A stunning and highly distinctive shirt. The bold use of pattern is wonderful.
