Just another striped shirt

Added Nov 1, 2008

My husband has wanted another long-sleeves shirt like this for sometime. So I use his favorite shirt to make a pattern. Instead of using some ribbings for the bottom of the shirt and sleeves, I just left them unfinished and zig-zag stitched them about 1 cm from the edge. I zig-zag stitched a 3 cm wide strip of the fabric to reinforce the neckline, leaving the edge raw. Making the shirt was so easy, all it took was only half an hour.

It’s a new favorite now!
