Description

A shirt for my husband; made using Burda 7767 custom fit to him, and in navy and white striped cotton with contrasting yellow cotton used for lining for the cuffs and collar stand.
And the buttonholes are on the diagonal! This is the first time I’ve tried buttonholes this way and I’m very pleased with how they look. I think they add a fun funky touch to what is otherwise a fairly basic and standard men’s shirt.

Material Notes

navy and white striped cotton, yellow cotton, yellow buttons

    Great shirt, the buttonholes look funky :) I really need to get into making menswear, wish there were more resources around for it.
