I bought some gorgeous polka dot chambray fabric* from fabric.com. (Sorry, it’s not available anymore.) It is gorgeous fabric and a dream to sew with. I just love, love it. And I love this button up shirt. I forgot how many buttons go on the front of a shirt and I should’ve added one or two more. I’m slightly nervous that it’ll gap a little at my bust, but I can’t change it now. Here’s how to open a buttonhole.
I like my button up shirts really long, almost like a tunic. I like to wear them with leggings or tuck them in which both need extra length. I used the long sleeve blouse pattern and added length to the sleeves and the body. Besides that I didn’t alter that pattern at all. It’s a great pattern and I can see myself using this pattern multiple times in the future. (I was melting in these pictures. It was only 9am and already over 80 degrees.)
