Butterick 5678 Button Shirt

I have been in the process of making this button down shirt from the Butterick 5678 sewing pattern. I love that it is a princess cut blouse in a button down shirt style. The sizing is wonderful too, I was able to make my size, which is size 12, with the correct bust size B. 
There are a lot pieces, 17, to put together but if you are patient it will go very quickly. I am working with Robert Kaufman's gingham fabric in the color pond. 
I love my Brother machine. 
This part of the pattern, the collar, was the hardest part to put together. The diagram in the pattern was hard to understand and I couldn't find one online. Hopefully this will help someone. The collar is sandwich between the two collar band pieces and the non-interfacing band is sewn to the neck line of the shirt. Then you fold the band over and and incase the neck line, raw edge. 
Next sleeves, cuffs and finishing this blouse.
Can't wait to finish!
