Description

This is a shirt I made based on the Jakob pattern. I added a front placket in the grey, as well as adding sleeve plackets in the contrasting white, a technique I learned from here.

I also made the collar smaller by about 5/8 inch because the one on the pattern is HUGE! I also interfaced both parts of the collar and cuffs with the strongest interfacing I could find, because my collars never end up stiff enough. This time, though, it definitely worked… :)
