Collared shirt with stand-up collar, front placket, bust darts, and front/back vertical darts created from a Loretti pattern download ($0.99) available at sewingpatterns.com. This is the first time that I worked with a Loretti/Lekala pattern. I have changed it from the original draft due to some challenges I encountered. I experienced more time deciphering the directions and figuring out the pattern layout than the actual sewing. Be prepared to supplement the sparse and vague directions with useful resources from the blogosphere, YouTube video tutorials, and sewing books.
