Striped Jakob Dress Shrit

Added May 22, 2008

Cotton/Spandex green striped dress shirt with a sleeve placket alteration.

Some people have been asking about the sleeve placket. I used this video tutorial found on YouTube.

He claims you are able to download a template on his site but I have yet to find it. You can pretty much eyeball it given the slit that’s already on hte pattern.

    hahah, great minds think alike! I just finished my boyfriend’s Jakob this weekend and I made a sleeve placket, too. I used the directions in the WONDERFUL “Shirtmaking” by David Page Coffin to do mine (and the rest of the shirt).

    Nice shirt! The sleeve placket is a great alteration. I noticed that most rtw shirts have plackets like that. Did you draft it yourself? Use another pattern or how to?
