I am in love with this button down! It was one of my projects for intermediate apparel assembly this semester. Since I chose to make a men’s button down, I had to provide my own pattern, and I used Collette Pattern’s Negroni. It came together beautifully. I made it from a plaid quilting flannel, and for interest I cut the yoke and cuff pieces on the bias. The only changes I made to the pattern were to add a few inches to the sleeves (my boyfriend is very tall and skinny!)
Speaking of boyfriends… How cute does he look in it?! He enjoys it just as much as I do. I think it’s a keeper.
