New Plaid

New plaid shirt! Love how this turned out. It was a fun math puzzle trying to match plaids with only 1.5 yards of fabric (barely enough for a long sleeve button down as it is), but it turned out great. Especially the front placket and back yoke/collar section. The fabric is from Hell Gate Fabrics.

 Pockets on the bias.
The one disappointing thing are the sleeve cuffs. While they look good, the binding is a little off because it was done with mitered corners. I think a henley placket technique would work better next time.


 See how the center plaid alternates?!

    1. Thanks! The pattern is a Burda Style pattern from a while ago: http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/long-sleeve-blouse-042010
      I've made a few mods over the years, but it's a good basic.
