I started with pinning the darts in the back parts
and I pinned the shoulder parts to the side front parts, starting with a pin in each end and then get the fabric even out in between
starting from each end towards the middle
looks like this
then I pinned the centre front and facings together
the centre front moving out a few mm, so the facing is a few mm bigger at the pointy end of the collar/revers
and the same with the other side
then I pinned the centre back seam at the lower back parts
and the button facings to the sleeves, for this I left the facing folded and pinned through 3 layers of fabric
then I sewed the darts
and ironed them towards the centre back
I sewed the shoulder parts to the side front parts, cut into the seam allowance of the front parts and cut small triangles from the seam allowances of the shoulder parts
and ironed the seam allowances apart
I also sewed facing and centre fron together at neckline and front edge
cut in the seam allowance at the slight curve
and cut the corners off.
then I ironed the seam allowances apart
and turned the right side out, because the front part is a little smaller the pointy end is curving up
and makes it fold naturally as it is supposed to
also sewed the centre back seam
and ironed the seam allowances apart.
at the sleeves I cut into the seam allowance of the sleeve
and ironed the seam allowance into the sleeve.

The print I designed myself, so if you like it, you can visit spoonflower here and order it for your next project (also in other color-combinations or a smaller size) and I will earn a commission with ever order. For this project I had it printed on heavy cotton twill.
keep sewing and smiling
