Den Haag, Nether...
For my birthday, I got Winifred Aldrich’s Metric pattern cutting for menswear, so I could finally try to design things for my boyfriend as well as for myself.
This shirt is based on the ‘tailored shirt block’ because after drawing all three (classic, casual and tailored) I thought this one was most suited to his built (he’s quite tall but fairly slender and wide shoulders). I extended the back yoke towards the front and added box pleated pockets with flaps. On the back, I made vertical seams instead of the blocks darts.
All seams are flat felted seams.
On the picture, the front looks a bit odd but that’s because of the camera angle.
fairly thick (for a shirt) cotton/polyester blend fabric
