Special materials required: For the dress shirt, view A, you will need some sort of button or snap and some interfacing for the collar and button placket.
Skill level required: This shirt is very easy and was a smart choice for me to pick for a last-minute, unplanned project. The collar does not have a stand and the sleeves are pretty basic in shape.
Good: It was a simple project for a classic look. I would like to use this pattern for my boy who loves a collared shirt. I like a more traditional dress shirt with a collar stand and a separate button placket. But the fold-over placket sure made it come together fast and it is a great option for beginners.
Bad: I did not conduct my usual narrowing of the shirt and as you can see it is quite wide on her. I did not mind because in the summer she will appreciate the breeze and this fall she can layer. But, I do think the shirt runs big and you should keep that in mind when choosing your sizes.
Overall pattern rating: I would give this pattern an overall rating of 4 bolts.
