Months ago, I saw a pattern in Burda WOF of a shirt with the buttons going to the side. I liked that feature, but not the overall fit. Now, I’ve incorporated that in my own design. Fitted shirt, shaped with panels (not with darts, exept for the one breast dart), classic shirt sleeves with slits like those on men’s shirts and fold over cuffs.
I’m not entirely pleased with the end result. It would have been more comfortable with the buttons a little less to the side and the colour combination and stiffness of the fabric make it look like some kind of catering uniform.
red cotton, black cotton (for the collar and the facings of the collar stand and cuffs), black buttons
