This was definitely one of the easiest things I’ve made so far. I commissioned this shirt for my friend’s pirate outfit for Talk Like a Pirate Day, because he didn’t have anything really “authentic”. He was thrilled to have it, although I’m disappointed in the ribbon I used for the collar and cuff ties because most have torn off (quite easily, too). The pattern called for fabric ties, but good lord those were a pain in the… well, you know. ;)
