I am sewing Burda Style magazine 8/2010/106, a shirt with a concealed button placket. In this pattern the placket is a separate piece. It is not cut-on. It is a simple strip that you attach and fold in various ways to form the placket and facing on the right and another strip (the same size) for the facing under the buttons on the left.I have found out how to do a concealed button placket when the facing and placket is cut-on (attached to the front pieces of the shirt) but I cannot find instructions anywhere on how to do this when the pieces are separate. I am working with linen, which is fraying like crazy, so I don’t want to be attaching and detaching the pieces if I get the centre line in the wrong place. I have no spare fabric left. Anyone know how to do this?
