My husband has difficulties finding shirts that fit him well so I decided to make him one. I started of by downscalling the Jakob pattern down two sizes and making a mock, adjusting some measurements and then cracking on with the real thing. Good fun and a steep learning curve (I had never tried two-piece collars AND proper set on sleeves AND buttonholes…).
Burgundy cotton-linen mix (bought in Portugal) and second-hand buttons, both picked by the hubby.
me and Burdastyle for the pattern!
