This is a type of sewing that a lot of quilters have avoided, or maybe aren't interested in. I haven't sewn garments for a long time, although I think I tried a top or two last year.
Yes, a white cotton button up shirt with a collar. I've had countless incarnations of this shirt. It is always my go-to shirt that I might have 4 or 5 versions hanging up in my closet. The only drawback with the white shirt is that I inevitably get stains on it, or somehow wear it until it looks shabby,
A few days later, I spied a 6 yard piece of white Kona cotton that I had acquired, just to have on hand,
within minutes, the pattern was out of it's envelope.
