What I Used:
I used Butterick Pattern 5678, which in now out-of print.
I chose this pattern because it is semi-fitted, features shoulder princess seams, offers pattern alteration lines for petite sizing and A/B, C, D cup sizes. These were great pattern details for fitting! My fabric choice was a beautiful linen/cotton blend from Hancock Fabric.
What I Did:
I cut View B, featuring the button tab belt carriers, in a size 10 using a B cup.
I enrolled in a class from Craftsy the Classic Tailored Shirt. I flat-felled all my seams, carefully placed and stitched a pocket and pinned-eased the sleeves into the armhole for stitching. I only looked at the pattern instrutions for pattern layout and used the pattern alteration lines for petite sizing.
