A button-up shirt is a powerful garment. It works for business casual, pairs with jeans for a smart look, and layers under pinafores and dresses. Plus, it’s a satisfying project that puts all of your favorite clever sewing techniques to use.
The Rachel shirt features a spread collar, patch pocket, bust darts, and a subtle pleat at the cuff, which closes with a placket and button. The back of the shirt has a center tuck that releases at the waist, for shaping and a fun silhouette.
