So, why go to all that trouble when I already have a tried 'n true shirt pattern? I could have easily sewn a pleated front panel to my existing pattern.
But now I have the alterations I need on any burda bodice. That's my hope, anyway!
Here it is: I finished the shirt yesterday and I love the fit. I will post photos as soon as I have sewn on the 19 (yes, 19!) buttons. I was too lazy to go out and buy them yesterday- I ordered them from Atlanta Thread and Supply. (cheaper, too!)
