Notes I've made this shirt before, but as my measurements have changed I ordered the pattern again.

I forgot to measure my hips over the trousers I planned to wear it with (I prefer to do this with Lekala's fitted or semi-fitted styles, just my preference), so I ended up adding a little bit of extra ease to the hips at the side seams. I made no other changes.

The fabric is a light-to-medium weight linen. If you've made a shirt with a stand collar before, it shouldn't be too hard to make. You really need to keep track of what goes left and what goes right though.

My shirt got a compliment from a total stranger, so it must be a good-looking shirt!

    I love this pattern! I was just looking at your other one (the purple one) and I can not decided which on is best. They are both so stylish.

    Those covered buttons make this look really professional, a lovely shirt.
    A compliment from a stranger must confirm that this looks good!
