    A really nice shirt that was easy to make. Excellent instructions and I love the way the pattern prints and sticks together. I also appreciate the inclusion of the alternative full bust piece. This was my first attempt at a garment with a collar and functioning buttons, and I’m delighted with how it turned out! I will definitely make it again.
