I've come across a problem! (Of course I have, or else I wouldn't be posting here
A friend and I are cosplaying Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny. The problem lies within Officer Jenny's shirt. It looks like a normal, button up shirt would.
With one, very important problem: There are no buttons. ^^;;
So meanwhile I've been trying to figure out how to squeeze my friend into a collared shirt made out of broadcloth (no stretch!) with no buttons down the front.
Here's what I was thinking: A zipper underneath the arm, and then a slit at the back collar, with a button closure up top so her head can fit through. Or, maybe instead of the closure being in the back, I could make it in the shoulder instead, hidden underneath her epaulette?
If anyone has any better suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them. If not, then if anyone has a pattern for a collared shirt without buttons, I would also be glad to hear about it. I'm running terribly short on time, and I don't look forward to altering a pattern with buttons into one without. >_>; However, I obviously will if I have to.
