This pattern for a classically cut tailored shirt was published in 2002 and is now out of print. Copies can sometimes be found on eBay. It is hard to tell from the envelope illustrations that underneath the fancy finishes lurks a straightforward shirt pattern but – believe me! – it is there, and if you really like shirts, this pattern is worth acquiring. Very deep and wide vertical darts in the front allow you to add more ease to the hip by taking in less than the full width of the darts. I have made several examples of Burda 8548, mainly in Liberty of London’s lawn but also in a striped Japanese cotton with a crinkle finish, purchased from Tessuti. This pattern is a great favourite of mine, and is warmly recommended.
