this is the third dress shirt i’ve made for my husband and it’s definitely the best one yet. while the mccalls pattern i’ve been basing these on really is nowhere left to be seen once i’ve modified it to the rtw standard, i still think that the fit is really nice. this time around i had david coffin’s shirtmaking book at my side and it most definitely gave me a crisper finish.
