I used this fabulous chambray by Lisette for JoAnns. I love this fabric! My husband, on the other hand, is not a fan. He says it feels like denim and denim shirts are not his cup of tea. Owell-I sewed it, I chose the fabric. I’m just that nice!
used the Jakob pattern by Burda. This was the pattern I downloaded last year so I just went with it, trying to justify that purchase, I suppose. I should have trusted my better instincts and just bought the Negroni pattern that is ever so popular. I will be ordering it immediately after finishing this post.
The Jakob pattern was great, except for the placket, or lack thereof. The best thing about menswear is the details! Details and sexy top stitching. I’m a huge fan of top stitching! Anyhow, this pattern I used only had a continuous lap to put on the slit which was not a nice detail. Fine enough for a casual shirt such as this, where my husband can roll the sleeves. Not fine for one in which he’d like to leave the sleeves down.
He was so nice to humor me with a photo shoot after work!
