This is a shirt I made for my stepdad using some beautiful Italian cotton shirting from Mood Fabrics. I used the Colette Negroni pattern as I liked the modern cut and excellent instructions but drafted my own front button placket and collar with stand based on an existing ready to wear shirt. I also added slots to the undercollar so it can hold stays/bones. The stripe matching was a challenge for me but I’m really pleased with it!
