Hot Patterns Plain & Simple Superfantastic Shirt Pattern
Make a muslin!!!
I never do...but never having used a Hot Patterns product before, I did do a mock-up of this shirt, and am I glad I did. If my bust was dead center on my sternum and up under my chin and I had a neck like a giraffe, the pattern would have been perfect as is. Took quite a lot of fiddling to get the fit. Also, the directions are definitely lacking (note the X-shaped stitching at the bottom of the placket in the picture---it's not in the directions). Having said all that, once the pattern was altered and the directions amended, the resultant shirt is a winner.
