I made a few simple changes to the pattern. I did shorten it to my liking. We all have our preference for lengths. The yoke is pin tucked. Here is where there's opportunity for a lot of embellishment ideas. Gig's has Heirloom techniques. Beautiful!
The pattern has a hidden placket front for buttons. On the neckband, instead of making a buttonhole, I made covered snaps and sewed a covered button on top.
The sleeves are supposed have french cuffs, with buttonholes also. But again, I simply turned the cuff into position, and sewed on covered buttons.
