Black Linen Oversized Shirt
I finally made up the Long-Sleeved Shirt (8a) from Simple Modern Sewing by Shufu To Seikatsu Sha using some plain slate-black linen blend fabric from my stash. I like that this book has been translated into English and contains standard US measurements. This was the first time that I have made anything with button holes or a Chinese collar and I now feel pretty comfortable with both, though I do think that the various gathers and oversized style make construction much easier. In the future, I would like to try the Archer Button Up Shirt from Grainline Studios.
