A New Shirt Finished

I finished the tuck shirt and I am very happy with the results. This is from OOP Butterick 4023. I used a light weight linen blend.

Here is a close up of the collar
It was easy. I'll definitely make another and one or more of the other views. Next time I'll add length to this shirt. That is a pattern alteration I never thought I would have to do. It is a little short,but totally wearable.

Hi Lisa, the shirt is beautiful. The tucks I have mentioned before, but the collar is very nice on this shirt - it sits well. As the shirt was a little short, I take it you did not do a muslin - does Butterick make patterns that tend to fit you? I think some pattern companies work better for some shapes than others.

Wow- you are always doing things that scare me to try! I have a little tuck terror and this is so sharp, I want to get past it and have this shirt for me!! Nicely done!

Very nicely done, Lisa! I love the tucks and the fabric is perfect. It's a shame this pattern is OOP. I would get it in a heartbeat.
