Description

This is my second time making the Frank button-down shirt from Burdastyle: Sewing Vintage Modern. This version was inspired by Woodrow Call’s shirt in the Lonesome Dove miniseries. I omitted the collar piece and added a double welt pocket with a tab (with the help of this excellent tutorial: http://www.flickr.com/photos/7370831@N07/sets/72157606959470776/with/2777138151/). It’s my boyfriend’s new favorite shirt!

    The detail is wonderful on this piece. The pocket gives the shirt a nice subtle edgy tone to it.

    Love the joke with the pocket – a trouser pocket on a shirt! Very nice and very well made.
