This shirt did not come together as easily as it should have, but even thought there’s still some kinks to get out, I’m pretty happy with it.

I even managed to match the plaid down the front across the button placket.

It’s a combination of Advance 8254 and Simplicity 4940, although I didn’t choose to Frankenstein them together :(

To read a cautionary tale about not getting in a hurry, always double checking that all pattern pieces are present, and never sew late at night to meet a deadline, go to my blog Betsy’s Baby. Y’all Come!
