Lady McElroy cotton lawn from Minerva for their website. Itch to Stitch Mila Shirt This is the fourth time I've sewn one. I used mauve 15mm buttons from Mr W and I bought the same set but in 11/ 12 mm, which I used for the cuffs. I didn't have any thread that matches this rose/mauve colour so I ended up finding a taupe/beige match on amazon. I can make shirts with all the colours now. I love the proper shirt look with its collar stand, nicely sized collar, placket and cuffs. I marked the buttons on with new sewing biros and they wouldn't iron off even with hot steam, I thought I would have to redo the placket, in the end I scrubbed them off with soapy water!
