Description

I really like this pattern! I scaled it to a size 34 and made a few other changes, including cutting the front piece on a fold to eliminate the odd-looking center seam, making the sleeves and hem much shorter, lowering the neckline, and cutting about two or three inches off the shoulder seams to make the shirt less baggy. For a finishing touch I added the contrasting lace around the collar. I love how it turned out – this will definitely be my go-to summer shirt!

    I think your alterations improved the pattern. Also, the fabric and lace you chose are lovely :)
