Made from the McCalls 5929 pattern, very pleased with the result. Being my first thing made from a pattern, the placket was quite a challenging experience, and the instructions were hard to understand. Once i figured out how that placket went on with some help from some burda members and my mum, it was fairly easy. I used quite a heavy fabric making it fairly warm.
