What materials did you use? !00% cotton fashion fabric in a medium weight. I wanted something a little heavier that would be ideal for transitional weather as well as the possibility of wearing it partially open with a tank top underneath. I used silk for some of the finished seams and felled the others.

Thus is a very elegant shirt, I love your seam treatment for the front facing! What pattern did you use? I also love your fabric choice :-))

Thank you Pam. My confidence in shirt making is due to you and your amazing course. The pattern is McCall's 6750. Very easy and I was even able to put in a tower placket with a two piece sleeve (because I like how it looks.... more polished). The darts were great too. There are 4 side darts in the front. I wasn't sure if I was going to want all 4, but I went ahead and tailor tacked them. In the fitting process I decided to have them all and I am happy that I did as the fit is perfect.
