Another white shirt

I finished another white shirt for me, this one sleeveless and made of a lightweight cotton lawn using a Vogue pattern.  I'd been searching high and low since about May for a well-fitting sleeveless shirt.  I had to finally give up and make my own.  Well, it took less than a week so it wasn't too bad.

This is after altering the armholes, darts, and painstakingly placing and sewing on the pockets.  Getting the pockets lined up precisely and stitched on took the better part of an hour, phew.

Front, buttoned most of the way up.

Front, buttoned all the way up.  I'm pretty happy with the how the collar turned out.
