    I have two questions aboutthe all day shirt.
    1) Re the front placket, is the view A cut-on placket easier than the view b set-in placket and why would you want one over the other?
    2) my husband just wants a plain collar (not button down and not with pockets for stays. Is there any reason you can’t just make it with just the plain collar?
    Thank you.

    For your first question, I think the cut-on placket is a little easier than the set-in placket, although neither is really difficult. I think the main difference is that the cut-on placket is more formal-looking, and the set-in placket is more casual/matches the option for extra topstitching lines. For the 2nd, although I haven’t made this shirt (I’ve made the classic shirt, though), I think you could just make the View B collar and NOT cut the buttonholes, and that would give you a plain collar.

    Thank you. I ended up making the view b and it came out well despite some missteps along the way. I erred on the side of caution since it was my first time making it but next time I want to try some of the contrasting fabric options for a more creative approach.
