I have made this shirt several times for others but recently found this beautiful Liberty Lawn fabric that begged me to buy it and to make into this pattern for myself. This pattern is from Burda Magazine 1/2008 #122. It was quite easy to make and I added at least 10cm extra to the hem to give it the length I needed for my height. I love Mother of Pearl buttons, so I put them on the front placket and sleeve cuffs.
