I searched high and low for an alternative to the facing used on Burda's Jakob shirt as I really wanted to learn how to sew a placket just like those in the shops... I've never written instructions for a how to before, so if I've missed anything or if you're unsure, send me an email and I'll try to help. Before you start, take a look at all the steps, especially step 10, as I've noted a difficulty I had, and will welcome any suggestions for improvement, I don't think it effects the overall function of the shirt. If you make a placket using this how to, please post it as I'd love to see your work. BTW the shirt is now finished and posted :)

Technique Materials

Paper, ruler, protractor (optional), pencil, scissors, shirt in the making, additional fabric for placket pattern, iron.
