grey shirt for a sunny day
I dove into my thrifted fabric stash and came up with this grey jersey knit for #125 from the current (January 2009) issue of Burda World of Fashion. As drafted, the pattern calls for snaps on the placket, but I like how it looks snapless. I don't have a serger, so I did French seams for the side and shoulder seams. I added about 2" for the hem allowance.
This pattern is the sewing course pattern for the month, so the instructions are pretty in-depth and straightforward. The placket did give me a few nervous moments, so I resorted to hand sewing the very end with slip stitches.
