I actually sewed this in December and only recently had the opportunity to take pictures. It is very comfortable and I have been wearing it a lot. It is the perfect shirt for this cold Minnesota winter weather!
The pattern is from one of my favorite indie pattern companies, Blank Slate Patterns.
I love the button tabs on the long sleeve version - perfect for rolling up the sleeves and will be so useful when the weather warms up. I may be smiling in this picture, but I was not enjoying the cold!
I decided to cut the yoke and front pockets on the bias for visual interest and to avoid matching the plaid! The only change I made to the pattern was to lengthen the sleeves by 1 inch. Otherwise the fit is great for me!
Here's the best close up I have of the sleeve placket.
Finally, here is a sneak peak of my most recent sewing project and my first sewing project of 2016! I can't wait to share more about it soon!
