Shirt with no bust dart and rather loose. Its boyish style is highly compensated by lovely feminin details: flounces at the bottom of wristbands, and possibly on the collar.

I did not need another shirt pattern, but I am so glad I tried this one as it is now my favorite. The written instructions were sometimes a bit confusing but the video instructions were very clear (even though I don't understand a word of French).
The construction and finishing methods are a little different from what I was used to; even so I managed to make the neatest and most professional looking shirt in my 40 years of sewing.
