Make A Garment A Month Challenge - Burdastyle Paneled Shirt

Happy weekend everyone!
I am glad that I managed to finish my second project for "make a garment a month challenge". As you all know, this shirt based on Burdastyle Paneled Jersey Shirt 10/2013 view A size 34. I have to draw a new line of pattern because the minimum size from the original pattern is 36, I followed these tutorials. I also reduced the length of the sleeves and shirt bottom. Even so, in the end of my work I still need to sew the upper sleeve seams smaller because it was too big for me.

Materials:
I used 2 yards of knit cotton in deep purple color, 2 yards of printed knit - I still have left over fabric that is enough to make sleeveless dress, fusible interfacing, 4 small buttons in purple color and thread - as I don't have a similar color of thread, I used black color :)

How I worked n this shirt:
I'll show you a little of the sewing process, I started my work by fused the fusible interfacing on the wrong side of center front - in the end of band attachment lines. As shown on the picture below,


Then I sew center front onto side piece with cut on sleeve, right sides together. I did the same manner on the center back as well.
After that, I lay the center front on the center back - right sides together and sew it a long the shoulder seams and upper sleeve seams.
And then I sew the neck band on the neck edge. You can see the image below,
After I have done the neck edge, I worked on the front bands. I pinned each front band to front. Right sides together.
Then I sew it. Press the seam allowances onto band, fold the band on fold line, pin upper edge together and stitch it. Trim the seam allowances across corners, turn band right side out. Pin each band over attachment seam, then I baste by hand and topstitch it - from outer side of garment.
After that, I worked on the buttonholes and sew the buttons.
 
And here are the final pictures of the paneled shirt front and back side, 
 
 
Happy sewing and thanks for reading!

    1. Thank you so much SarahLiz. It's nice to wear casual top and I am thinking to make more in future :)
      I was so scared to sew with knit cotton, but I am fine now after searching some tutorials to deal with it.
