Pattern Description: Misses button down shirt with sleeve and length variations
Pattern Sizing:Size 6 thru 14 - I made a size 10 for the shoulders and size 16 everywhere else
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes except I made the sleeves 3/4 length and a shorter length of View B
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. One thing that confused me was the fact that in stitching the collar band to the collar band facing, they say to press under 3/8 inch on the collar band and stitching close to the seam on the outside to catch in the seam. I found that it didn't catch so I ended up pressing under 5/8 inch instead.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the tabs on the sleeves and side. No dislikes
Fabric Used: A striped cotton that has a slight stretch to it.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made View A but kept the sleeves long so I could roll them up to more of a 3/4 length.
Since I am short, I shortened it to more of the length of View B.
This didn't require a FBA. I sewed the sleeves in before I sewed the side seams. I also waited and tried it on before I put the back darts in but didn't extend them down to the hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and I highly recommend this pattern.
