Butterick B6852 Misses’ Classic Button Down Shirt with Collar, Sleeve, and Hem Variations
Because of a request from a college sewing teacher, we created this shirt to give her the details she wanted to teach. It has a simple back yoke and a collar and collar band. It has simple-to-fit darted shaping and sleeve and front band variations. The long sleeve features our famous “painless placket” that Marta Alto created for our Painless Sewing book in the 1970s. It allows you to put the cuff on with the sleeve flat. Choose from a narrow-hemmed shirt tail hem or a straight hem with side slits. (This pattern used to be McCall’s M7575.)
Make This Classic Shirt
Semi-fitted shirts have back yoke, collar, sleeve, hem & length variations.
After tissue-fitting and cutting, you should be able to sew this shirt in three hours. (If not the first time, maybe the second time.) We’ve specialized in shirt techniques for years and you can follow speed demon Marta Alto on our Learn to Sew a Shirt or Blouse video, either as a DVD or streaming/downloadable video.
