Liberty Jane Button Up Shirt for 18 inch dolls

Adorable pattern. Very authentically detailed. I made the boy cut version. Decided to make it the dress length, but somehow. It wasn't as long as I expected. I added 2 inches, rather than the 1.5 in the back. Still cute as you can see. There was some frustration and a couple of tear aparts to re-sew, mostly due to old, not-so-nimble fingers. In the end it made a lovely shirt. It took about 2 hours from start to finish, and definitely not for beginners. This is my practice shirt, but I am pretty happy with it. Now off to make a few more.
