Shirt part 3

Here's the shirt as of last week. 
Since then I've added the collar band.

Below you can see the pleated front. I still have chalk marks on it from trying to get it lined up.
Other than the pleats and side seams, the shirt is completely hand sewn.
 

Here's the sleeve placket before I folded it over and finished sewing it.

The finished placket.

Here's one of the gussets. I found sewing the gussets a little difficult.

All i have left to do are the buttons, button holes, and a detachable collar.
