You've also seen this shirt before, in parts. The body is Burda 10-2009-105, and the collar stand and upper collar are Burda 09-2009-105. Does Burda have some rule that pattern #105 be a standard button down shirt?
|Pant: Burda 02-2009-117. Shirt: Burda 10-2009-105 and Burda 09-2009-105. Lee is in the window to my left, trying to photo bomb me.|
|You can see some of the pocket pucker going on here, but I'm not too bothered by it.|
|Can you see where I cut my shirt yoke off grain (secret talent of mine)? I didn't think so. Speaking of yokes, I'm pretty happy with how the bake yoke on the pant aligned.|
|I love these round buttons and think they make the shirt.|
I learned in sewing the three pant muslins before jumping into this pair that a curved waistband makes all the difference. I liked the pant legs of one muslin but hated how it fitted in the waist -- it has a straight waistband gapped and pulled. This pant has a default straight waistband but I figured out how to draft my own curved waistband! Magic!
Along the same tune, I swapped out the straight collar stand on Burda 10-2009-105 (see my first take in striped shirting) for the curved collar stand and the smaller upper collar from Burda 09-2009-105 (made up twice before in cotton paisley) and am happy with the result. I have the close fit of 10-2009-105 but the more flattering collar from 09-2009-105. I also did not shorten the sleeves like I did no my first version of 10-2009-105, and it's a much more comfortable shirt to wear. Lesson in over-fitting learned.
