The collar had been majorly cut back, I assume because the style changed so dramatically from the late 70’s to the 80’s. Besides the collar the shirt is pretty much timeless I think, but as I love a good 70’s collar I altered the piece back to it’s giant pointy proportions!
The pattern has facings for the armholes which are a nice touch and were drafted perfectly, no easing required, why aren’t modern patterns drafted this well? There are 2 small darts at the top back as well to shape it which are a lovely touch.
The buttons on the shirt are from my Grandmother’s button box. They’re not old old but definitely from the 80’s if not a little earlier judging by the price that was on the card they were attached to.
I’m really happy with the way this came out and I’m sure I’ll be using the pattern again in the future.
