Notes The fit was really good - no need for any adjustments.

I've made some pattern changes to make a hiking shirt.

- Shortened the pattern by 30cm to make it a shirt with shirt tail hem. It is a little too short and I'll add an extra 5cm next time

- Converted placket to button-down
- Left of front flap. Changed the top of the front princess seam to a yoke at the same length as the flap.
- Change the top of the back princess seams to a yoke, 3cm above back flap at the armhole. The yoke was made from mesh for extra airflow.

    Such a clever idea to use the yoke to make a vented shirt.
