Men shirt with pearlsnaps instead of buttons.
I used a pattern from Burda Magazine (Men’s shirt #129 05/2011) and I chose the size corresponding to my dad’s neck measurement: the shirt fits him perfectly! ;)
This was my first attempt in menswear and I had some cold sweats when it came to sew “technical parts” such as collar, sleeve cuffs, front pockets, etc. but I’m pretty pleased with the result and the details quality! (Yeah for me! lol :) ).
