    I was looking for a tutorial on drafting a sleeve placket (similar to the shirt front placket on the Jump Rope) and look, it’s City Weekend!

    Ha! Who knew there was still some of it out there! It’s a nice quality, so I can see why a shirtmaker would like it.

    Are you going to tackle the two-piece sleeve placket? It does look nice if you have the patience to fiddle with it.

    Yup, I just tried it, and oddly, the first sleeve came out nicer than the second. I like being able to tuck in a little bit of contrast fabric there in the underlap. The Music Class blouse I’m making is very simple otherwise, no extras, but I did tuck in a slightly contrasting fabric just in that one spot. I don’t think it’ll ever show in the normal course of things, but I’ll know it’s there.

    Thanks for sharing that @sarvi. I do like those plackets and that is such a cool way to do them. I am looking forward to seeing yours.

    I popped some sneaky Liberty into the little girls Music Class school blouse via the placket.
    We know it is there……

    I heart off the cuff tutorials! I’ve done plackets using this one before. They require a bit of precision but are strangely so satisfying! I just do a horizontal fold at the top of the placket instead of a point on my size 4T shirts. Otherwise, it gets quite fiddly.

    I can’t wait to see your blouse.

    And, I admit I have some city weekend here that I’ve still never found a use for.
