I chose this pattern because I loved the collar but making the collar proved to be more difficult than I first thought. The directions weren’t explicit enough for me as to how you were supposed to fold the fabric pieces over one another. I tried my best to match the pattern picture and spent over 30 minutes, folding, refolding, pinning, and ironing to make sure it looked just right. I got the desired result in the end but I thought the process could have been clearer. Love the shirt, though! The fabric is a pale cream stripe cotton, not to delicate or too fancy. I used a variation on this pattern for another shirt I made, also.
