The Classic Button Up Shirt has always been one of the most essential workhorse wardrobe staple in my closet. I create some version of a great white shirt at least once a year.

This year, it's Kwik Sew 3555, and I'm literally kicking myself for overlooking this amazingly drafted classic shirt for as long as I have. Sometimes, Kwik Sew patterns come across as "matronly". But they have a great selection of basics that every home sewist should have in their sewing arsenal. Basics that you can easily "zhuzh up" or hack.

  4. I really love how this shirt fits you under the arms. It's very feminine and the sleeves are trim. Do you alter the pattern at the armscye to customize your fit? I find mine end up looking like I'm wearing a man's (too big) shirt. As always, you have sewn it so beautifully, thank you for sharing your work. I look forward to every post.

    1. I didn’t have to make any alterations to this shirt other than my normal lengthening. Thanks Sarah!

  5. I really love that you gave a plus size option! I'm trying not to sleep on Kwik Sew, I didn't see this pattern! Great tip for top-stitching the pocket for precision and using the different machine feet.
