Arrowed buttons and a ‘just’ visible breast pocket
The collar is buttoned down but uses loops behind the collar points rather than button through; quite a nice touch.
My trademark odd colour button on left sleeve.
So that completes my shirt collection for a while…..probably!
I love the detailed instructions, reminds me of a comic book. Looks like the pattern calls for a lot more hand stitched details as well as bound buttonholes and bias bound seams.
The pattern pieces are not printed but cut and punched, as patterns used to be. I have been researching what all the holes; circles, squares and triangles mean. This will be a challenge, I know as I have only ever worked from printed or self-created patterns.
I shall be using some fine black corduroy fabric with a floral lining.
I think I will post regularly during the construction as it might help others using such patterns.
Happy sewing and watch this space as I go all vintage!
