What are you most proud of? I finally got the hang of installing the tower placket, by reverse engineering. Cut your pieces, fold where indicated, place on the sleeve where it will sit. Then work backwards, and finally sew. This is my last shirt for a while

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I stupidly used a pattern with many pieces that couldn't be matched; avoid pleats, gathers if using a fabric for exact placement.

Well done! You've done a great job with this challenging fabric. Thanks so much for letting us see your beautiful shirt :-)) Pam

I have been looking for a shirt with an interesting yoke and collar. I love the feminine detail of the gathers at the shoulders. Would you be willing to share what pattern you used? I think you did a spectacular job!

Oops....I see you put the pattern number in the title.
