Only this time, I'm finished.
I really like it. Its so classic and that collar is kick ass!
I did have the same issue on this one I tend to have on a lot of button front tops I make. My upper bust is a bit smaller than most patterns in my bust size, so if I don't adjust correctly, I get a gape at the first top button. I tend to raise the lapel line anyway, because I don't know how I'm built, but the lapel fold is always so low that I end up showing cleavage and I HATE that. Especially on a basic top.
That also means for me that I have the curve inward that button placket, which can be a pain, especially if the pattern's grain lines are along the button placket.

Aw well. I would prefer better fit because that bagginess at the top always bothers me. So I addressed those issues on this pattern and I'm quite pleased with it. Now I feel comfortable enough making a blouse from my vintage rayon. Yay!
But first, jeans...
