Butterick 5526

21 Sep Butterick 5526

It was time to make a shirt – not a top, not a tunic but a shirt. My Pattern Review friends are making shirts by the dozens while I’ve been acting as the cheerleader. While I’ve always appreciated the flexibility found in sewing my clothes, the precision of shirt-making kept my happy observer status in tact.

From my large collection of unmade shirt patterns, I selected Butterick 5526. View D offered princess seams giving me a more controlled fit.


After sewing the bodice pieces together of my new off white shirt, it hit me………… precision need not be so rigid.

In other words, lighten up!

Using an Amy Butler remnant I cut a contrasting front and neck band,

IMG_1649 along with an additional contrasting collar,


 and cuff plackets.

 I stitched orange buttonholes,


 and attached the buttons with green thread.


 Precision made fun  🙂

Goodbye Valentino sews Butterick 5526But sewing the contrasting pieces brought its own stress to the fun as precision became even more important.  At my request, Hubby an experienced buttondown consumer, scrutinized my shirt throughout the process. He even approved the orange buttonholes.


I like the orange buttonholes too, but I really like the newfound knowledge I gained from sewing a shirt…..  one can have fun and be careful at the same time 🙂

Have a great weekend!

    That’s the cutest shirt ever!!! The contrasting fabric and orange buttonholes are awesome!!! I’ve never made a shirt. It’s just so cute I almost want to make one. That’s “almost”. Maybe, 🙂

    Well someone’s fears were certainly unfounded! This is one heck of a beautiful shirt – your design choices are wonderful and the construction looks perfect. I have this pattern and as much as I love that “other” shirt pattern, these princess seams are gorgeous and it looks so great untucked. Now I can’t wait to try it. Hurray for you – I predict you will make many more!

      LOL! You and your Archer shirt friends shamed me into making a shirt! Midway through making it, the shirt looked like a muslin so I added the contrast, but next time I’m going to plan a contrast shirt rather than wing it 🙂 You’ll love this pattern and thank you so much for the inspiration to try something new.

    There is nothing better than making a tailored shirt that you know will fit. Yours is exceptional! I love making shirts, and have some beautiful chambray waiting right now. You have inspired me to go outside the basics though and add a little spirit to it. What was the white fabric you used, any special cotton? I am just wondering as I have made several with different contents, one w/ lycra, and one lightweight 100%, I like the hang of yours and it must be the weight.

    • goodbyevalentino
      Posted at 09:32h, 21 September Reply

      Thank you so much, Vivian! My fabric is a medium weight cotton linen/blend. There’s no stretch at all and I agree with you that the weight is what makes it hang so nicely.

    This is absolutely lovely, and the fit is terrific! So, you would recommend this pattern for someone who has never sewn a shirt? No big problems? I can’t believe that this is your first shirt. It’s looks so upscale RTW. Great job.

    • goodbyevalentino
      Posted at 09:35h, 21 September Reply

      Thank you, Becky! I would recommend this pattern. I had zero problems but do emphasize the need to go slow and be careful. Having said this I got a little dyslexic with the cuffs and believe I inverted the pleats incorrectly. My interfacing was too heavy for the white front band though it didn’t cause a huge problem – but the pattern and directions are straightforward and uncomplicated. Good luck!

    Green and orange are great together. I’m curious if hubby kept wondering when you were putting the pocket on. Men are usually picky about pockets. Lol.

    I gather you were a bit ‘timid’ to make a shirt. Many are. Perhaps they’re intimidated by the number of pieces and parts involved. They don’t sew up in an hour, but in reality aren’t very difficult. There are also different methods of assembly for virtually all processes – from bands to stands to cuffs, etc.. I read/watched a well talked about tutorial and was surprised how may places where I do my assembly differently. If you have difficulties with one method, there’s likely another that might work easier for you.

    We’ll be watching for you ‘planned’ version. Cheers,

      Thank you for your comment, Wondo! I was most timid about the precision of those smaller pieces like the collar band, front band and cuffs. If they are not spot on, the whole garment looks bad. Thankfully I survived 😉

    Well, shirts must be on the mind as I ordered my first pattern this week – with princess seams to boot! I never can find a blouse or shirt that fits me well so I decided to try making one myself with my measurements. I am going to follow your advice and that of your commenters and take it one step at a time. I am so worried about doing the buttonholes (my machine is not as precise as it used to be) but I’ll just take it slow and see what happens. Your shirt looks so professional and the contrast is so original! Great job! Great inspiration!!

    Stop it right now! That is the CUTEST shirt ever…seriously, I would pay big $$$ for that! LOVE what you did with the contrasting fabric and fun buttonholes. I’d have probably chickened out at the green thread sewing on the buttonholes (who am I kidding…I would never have THOUGHT of it in the first place…LOL), but the end result is so fun and upscale. Really nice!

    You’re right – it’s SUCH a pleasure to have a button down that actually fits. I wore one today from JCrew that looks good as long as you’re stationary. I fussed with it all day long! How nice to be able to know that this will work for your body shape and size. Can’t wait to see your next one. Love the princess seams, too!

    One question…I can’t quite figure out what you did with the collar. Is that a double collar, or am I just seeing the sides of the seams where both fabrics are showing?

    Beautiful job, Sarah!

    Sarah! I saw the article in the newspaper this morning about you. I had no idea, but I’m not surprised. You have always been talented and creative. Your new endeavor into the world of the sewing is no different. I’m impressed by what beautiful garments you’ve made.

    I made my first piece (a blouse) when I was in the 4th grade. My mother was an excellent seamstress. I learned from the best, but my time and interest in sewing has ebbed and flowed with my life’s phases. I made many of the boys’ outfits when they were little while I was in my smocking phase. It’s been years since I’ve made my own clothes, but I have always envisioned doing more sewing when the boys grew up. The boys are grown now and I still love sewing, but life hasn’t always cooperated. I failed to factor in the elderly parent phase, but I don’t mind that. I still plan to follow my dream to use the downstairs playroom as MY space…soon…someday.

    When we lost my mom, I inherited her machines and accoutrements. I’m now the proud owner of around 6 or 7 machines of all types, including my grandmother’s treadle machine. It works!

    Even though I don’t have as much time as I’d like to break out the sewing machine, you’ve inspired me. Congratulations on your success, both personally, since sewing brings a lot of personal satisfaction, and on the attention your beautiful work has brought you. You’ve put a smile on my face this morning. I truly enjoyed the article and cruising your blog.

    P.S. If you discover you need something related to sewing, I probably have it…somewhere. After recently moving my dad from his apartment at White Oak to the nursing facility, I now have the contents of his apartment in my house waiting to find its way to a permanent place (plus what we brought from their house when they moved to White Oak.) I have boxes and boxes of all things sewing. Either of the girls need a sewing machine? I might have something… :>)

      Hi Karen!
      Thank you so much for taking the time to write and bring me up to date with you. So sorry about the loss of your mother. You sound like you own everything sewing related and I hope you can use it for yourself one of these days. You’ll love sewing clothes again and it will happen when the time is right. Good luck and please stay in touch 🙂

    This looks great! Shirtmaking really does inspire you to be precise– I must’ve ripped out my topstitching a dozen times. But there’s something really fun about it, too. It’s pretty amazing to watch a shirt come together bit by bit. I love the fun touches you added, and the princess seams are really flattering! Awesome job!

    Congratulations! Enjoyed the Herald Journal piece on fashion and “local girl made good”. It’s perfect as you’re the quintessential southern lady with charm and style. Did you go to the SPO premiere last night? Wasn’t it something? Totally enjoyed myself. Now, looking forward to the next in the season.
