For quite a while since I started sewing, shirts have intimidated me…They’re one item where fit is crucial everywhere! Shoulders, neck, waist, back, etc…And there are a lot of details and pieces, back yoke, collar with a stand, cuffs, button plackets. And until now I think they’re the most demanding garment to sew properly.

Pattern used is Burda Young 6849 view A.

      Thanks Nadia :)
      It does require patience, breathe in, breather out, basting, and pressing, but it’s not difficult as such, you should give it a go one day :)

    I like your shirt! The pocket’s and the yokes’ matching is impressive! It’s really suits you well! All your shirts are so neatly sewn and they look so good! I wish I have such patience and skills, as you do ))
