Description

I wanted to make a relaxed shirt using this light and soft fabric, so I went for this shirt dress pattern. There are no darts, the shoulders are slightly dropped, it was perfect.

I used the JJ shirt pattern for length and hem shape.

    Hey! It fits you great! Have you done the plackets? I can’t understand the instruction and I see tutorials on youtube but the pattern piece fot the placket is really different I think.

      Hi Ioanna! I didn’t understand those instructions either, until after I made the placket following this tutorial:
      http://off-the-cuff-shirtmaking.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/tutorial-shirt-sleeve-placket.html

      After finishing the shirt I read the instructions again and realised they are very similar to the link above, but Burda doesn’t use the small facing piece, it just ask you to turn and sew (like a hem) that side of the sleeve. Which is not as nice as having it bounded by a facing.

      I hope this makes sense, good luck!

      Oh my God! I passed on all tutorials and results on google about plackets and then, I was like “ok, maybe Burda has a wrong piece of pattern there. it’s too small!”.
      I haven’t understand that it wanted to do that like a hem in the one side! Thank you so much, Serena!
      I was reading your blog yesterday (yes, I said… I looked all the results on google about “plackets”! hehehe!). Thank you again!
