Butterick 5711 view B in a stretch cotton. My first buttonholes! I removed a lot of volume from the sleeves because they had A LOT of poof going on; probably about 4 inches from the under arm seam.
One thing I really liked about this pattern was that you hem it right in the middle of the construction. It’s nice not to save that for the last step when all you want is to be finished with the darn thing. :)
