This free downloadable pattern piece and tutorial can be used with our Liesl + Co. Classic Shirt pattern to expand your options.
Liesl used this pattern piece to transform the Classic Shirt pattern into a shirt dress. (See her Classic Shirt as a Dress blog post for details about lengthening the Classic Shirt pattern to dress length.) The popover placket works nicely on a dress because it eliminates any possible gaps or button pops below the waist, and it reduces the number of buttons and buttonholes you need to sew.
But you can also use this free placket and tutorial to change the Classic Shirt into a popover style to give the pattern a different look and feel.
See Liesl's blog post tutorial for instructions on how to use this free pattern piece.
