Inverted pleat tunic

Hi All, Hope you are well. I made this inverted pleat tunic that I want to share with you.
Self drafted tunic

Pattern : I traced a t shirt and extended it to make this tunic.
I like the red bright buttons on the back.

 The front of the tunic has a inverted pleat.

You can see on the paper how I made the pleat. This is how I did it to get it right in my head. I
first folded the pattern in half lengthwise and made the pleat to converge at the center.

I pasted the pleat together and then traced again for the front. I could have just calculated the extra fabric in center and added but I wasn't sure of the slight curve at neck.
The sleeves is doubled so no hem at sleeves and looks nice too. :)
1. Interface the placket
2. Widen the placket. When worn the last button at bottom keeps coming off so I'm hoping if I widened the platcket and interfaced it, I could solve the problem? And the button holes aren't actually big. They are just right in case you were thinking. :)
Thanks for reading,
Have a nice weekend.
