Simplicity 2339 White Shirt and button selection
This shirt told me it wants silver colored buttons. So I went through the button stash to look for silver buttons and here's what I found...
ok, not silver but still a possibility....
I think the smaller square buttons are going to be the ones... it picks up the square weave design in the fabric better than any of the others.
You can see that little weave in this pic.
This was a good pattern, one of the few that did not have excess sleeve cap ease. This will be a nice cool summer shirt, not fashion forward but very "neat". I do have to say this for it, there is ease in the body, and the way it is constructed, there is a lot of shaping, waist darts (front & back), bust dart, yoke seams. This is one of the few shirts in my wardrobe that does not strain over the bust. There is ease where it is needed.
It's also one of the "Amazing Fit" series from Simplicity, so it gives you pattern pieces for different cup sizes.
What it really needs now is a good pressing, and finishing.
