I wanted a white shirt but found the plain white version a little boring – so I decided to make one similar to a Van Laack shirt and used a red checked cotton for the inner collar stand, the inner cuffs and also for covering the buttons with it. For the shirt itself, I used a waffle weave cotton from my Mum’s stash, probably older than I am ;-)
The pattern is No. 104 from Burdastyle 08/2009, but without the ruffle. I did not topstitch the collar – or, strictly speaking, I did but did not use that collar, it just didn’t look good on the waffle weave; I made a new one. So the shirt ended up a bit softer and more casual.
