Jakob with two-piece placket facing and altered collar

This is my first attempt at a non dress/skirt pattern. I made this shirt for my husband who has a grey suit from a bridal party and no shirts to wear it with. It was also a gift: cotton shirt for our cotton wedding anniversary!

I had to alter the pattern from the smallest size 48 down to a 44. I also altered the collar to be more like a dress shirt to be worn with a tie and used a two-piece placket facing. I’ve attached my altered collar piece and the pattern for the non-square half of the placket facing. If you chose to use the collar I have drafted, you will need to add 5mm for each size jump to the length along the fold line i.e to go from size 44 to 46 add 5mm.
