Athena 2 in the making

What am I working on now? Well, I have another pair of Oxford pants hanging and waiting to be hemmed. To go with them, I am trying the La Fred Athena 2 pattern. I have had this pattern for a couple of years and have never made it. I'm using a nice white cotton and I think I'm going with black buttons. There are interesting lines to the shirt, but that also makes for a bit of a time consuming project as well. All of those corners! The neckline is also sewn in corners, which looks nice, but is hard to get right. Mine is not exactly right. I'm making the short sleeved version. I think I'm a little more than half way finished on this one.

I have wonderful light weight coat that I got in India some years ago and the sleeves are cut just like this. They are amazingly comfortable and flattering. I'm interested in seeing how the blouse comes out.
