Hurray!! It’s done (Burda 02/2007 pattern 13); it’s not perfect, but it’s wearable (if it ever gets warm enough).
I added 2.5″ in length at the waist (I’m pretty tall), but I think it needs an inch more under the bust so those top 2 buttons start a bit lower. Or perhaps I need some sort of bust adjustment; I usually work with knits which are more forgiving. It’s also feels a bit tight when I move my arms, but maybe that’s just what a woven shirt feels like. I’d love to know, can you make a well-fitted perfectly comfortable shirt from a non-stretch woven?
Thanks for stopping by. I’m off to check out what other people are sewing up for the Burda Challenge 2015.
