First handmade button-down shirt
Using a burda style “novice” pattern I endeavoured to make my first button-down. The instructions were brief to say the least. If it weren’t for the amazing sites listed below with their tips and tricks, I’d have never got there. These sites I’m linking to here because I want to remember them and return to them for future projects!

Though the shirt took me about 4 separate days of work, one whole day was spent piecing the printed pdfs together. The second day was spent tracing on to tracing paper. The rest of the time was spent trying to figure out how to do things.
The results though were fantastic.
