Description

Heavily modified Jakob 6013 due to hubby’s small frame. Had to make the body and sleeves tighter for better fit, and also the collar. I wish Burda pattern includes smaller sizes.

I had to make one muslim from the pattern, and modify by pinning after hubby tried it on. Also, i used existing shirt that he has (though not perfect fit) for reference when making the new pattern.

    nice work! I like the color and the fit looks great. I know what you mean about pattern alterations – Trying to perfect it seems sometimes like trying to reach illumination :-)

    Thank you Natalia! It was a painful process, and the fit is still not perfect as my DH would like. The sleeves are a little too tight for him. I almost wanted to use the women’s shirt pattern. But it is still a much better fit than the original pattern

    Great job. The fit is perfect. I guess if you take the time to make a muslin and fit everything properly, the finished garment looks amazing -I should start doing that.
