Peter Pan Collared Shirt – Butterick Pattern 5890

I finally decided on top D because I absolutely love shirts with a peter pan collar. I really like that this pattern asks for a contrasting fabric for the collar, because it makes this collar pop even more. The thing that made it even more perfect was adding a tiny bow to the middle of the collar, but you can very well add a cute button or pin. It's so easy to embellish and I love adding my own details.

Butterick 5890 really comes together quite easily and I could definitely recommend this pattern to a beginner sewer. In this project you'll learn not only how to create the peter pan collar, but also how to put in a zipper, do self lined sleeves and create tucks. The tucks are the techniques used to give the top that unique pleating in the front and back of the top. You'd be surprised at how incredibly easy it is to create this design and yet it's very effective in creating a silhouette with a cinched waist and a flared out hemline. The overall look is very unique.

This Butterick pattern is from their new summer line. You can order it directly from their site here.

    I don’t remember the name exactly. I picked it up at JoAnn’s and it’s a cotton fabric with a waffle texture and was next to the seersucker.
