The point is, he loves the song and I have to admit it's one that inspires you to get up and boogie. I can't tell you how cute a 6 year old is doing that silly dance.
I started with Melissa's Trendy Tuxedo Shirt pattern which already included extra width for the tuxedo pleats. I extended the front pieces by another inch to give the shirt a fuller fit and make sure I had enough room for the extra plackets. Besides the normal shirt pieces, you'll need 2 extra placket pieces and corresponding interfacing. This gives you a total of 4 placket and 4 interfacing pieces.
On the wrong side of each shirt front, I marked a 1 inch pleat , 2 1/2 inches from the center, raw edge.
Iron each piece of interfacing to the wrong side of a placket piece. Press each in half the long way, then open up, fold half to the wrong side and press.
Line one placket up with the pleat on the right side of the shirt front. Sew using a 1/4 inch seam.
Press the seam under, then fold the placket over the pleat, tucking the folded edge under. Pin and topstitch to the shirt front.
You'll now have a very nice button placket.
Lift that placket up out of the way. Pin the right side, raw edge of the next placket to the wrong side, raw edge of the shirt front. Sew using a 1/4 inch seam. Press the seam toward the shirt front, fold the new placket in half (long way), pin and topstitch in place.
You now have two nicely formed plackets. Repeat both steps for the other side.
Once the plackets are sewn, you can sew the shirt up per the pattern instructions.
Once the button holes are sew, you're ready to sew on 15 to 18 buttons on the shirt front.
I also included a button on the back collar and two on the shoulder seams.
The shorts are the Clean Slate Pants in oatmeal linen. And there you have it, your very own Gangnam Style shirt. Turn up the beat and you're ready to party!
