I love this pattern it’s cheap, easy and it’s perfect for work. With just a few accessories the shirt can be transformed into a evening outfit BUT the pattern instructions are RUBBISH you may as well chuck them out the window and go by your own knowledge of princess seems and adding on flat neck collars or get some help from a tutorial if you don’t know how.
Also, the center front pattern piece on both sides is much to big! I cut mine down and only interfaced the section that needed it for the button holes. I also did not add on a button on the very top of the collar I would wear this slightly open necked…. The only thing I’m not happy with other than instructions is that I didn’t match up the collar pin strips ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! But not too noticeable and it’s my first attempt at this patten I will make liz number 2 and ensure it’s matched.
Anything not too stiff/ thick so the normal cotton or shirting (I got this material pin striped with black and beige lines off e-bay for £.500 for 3 meters plenty left over bargain!) If you use a patterned or striped fabric…. don’t for get to match up the collar with the frount patterns as best you can my bad on this first draft.
