St. Petersburg, ...
I decided to take my foray into men’s wear a bit further after tackling the Andrew Cardigan. This is a McCalls 6044 pattern with a yarn dyed cotton (and I think lycra) blend. I used black color snaps for the closures and altered the pockets and flaps to be on the bias (stabilized with interfacing). Deuce likes it as far as I can tell, and I’m pretty pleased with it myself. Took about 10 hours total I’m guessing.
