This is a very simple shirt to make. I think that I finished it in a few hours. I love the pleat detail at the shoulder. This is made up in a soft cotton, but the pattern would benefit from a very soft draping fabric as well. I did not make very many modifications to the pattern, except for shorten the hem by about 3." The collar instructions are terrible. Here’s what I did starting from the front facing attachment: attach the front facings, attached the back facing along the top back, sewed the back facing to the front facing from the “inside” along the short side sections, turn to right side, pressed bottom seam allowance and stitched in the ditch from the outside of the shirt (or you can just slip stitch from the inside). I hope this makes sense. It resulted in a nice neat collar.
