Why should men be the only ones that get to wear cufflinks? They are such a fun little accessory! Unfortunately, it is practically impossible to find a a woman’s shirt with french cuffs (french cuffs being essential to the wearing of cuff links). Thus began my journey into the challenging world of “The Botton-down”
The pattern I used, does not actually have a french cuff. Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to change. Follow the pre-existing cuff pattern, but make it twice as long. Attach the cuff like you normally would, and simply fold the cuff over to create the french cuff.
Fabric: 100% Cotton Shirting (w/ a subtle diagonal pattern)
