Butterick 5526 - White shirt with rolled tab sleeves

10:00 PM

Project Details:

Pattern: Butterick 5526

Pattern Sizing: 6-12. I cut the 16.

The skirt is Vogue 8455 (OOP) that I made about 2 years ago!

Description: Fitted shirt have collar band, shaped hemline, long rolled sleeves (wrong side shows) and button tabs., front-button closing, topstitch trim and narrow hem, button trim on pleated pockets, front bands and princess seams.
Justify FullDid it look like the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Well, kind of... with modifications.

Fabric: White oxford shirting from Jo-Anns (70% cotton/30% polyester).
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't really use them because I've made a couple of shirts before.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love a pattern with several variations that can be mixed and matched.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:

  • I used the princess seam front and the plain back.
  • I altered the back to create a yoke.
  • I also added 2" to the length. I don't know why these types of shirts are drafted so short. They don't even give you enough length to tuck the shirt in.
  • I used flat fell seams.
  • I also used snaps instead of buttons.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would possibly sew this pattern again. I've been wanting to make a chambray shirt, so I may use this one again.

  1. I love the fact that you used snaps instead of buttons. I just bought this pattern was afraid of buttons. Thank you for pointing out another option. Lovely shirt.
