Added Jul 1, 2012
This project is based on the 06/2011 Men’s linen shirt #138 pattern on Burdastyle. I sewed it in a mocca brown linen, while my man was watching the finals of the UEFA Euro 2012. (Go Spain!) I had to shorten the shirt quite a bit and added a small hook and eye in the top slit (because my man thought it was too “revealing” ?!). Overall I think it is a classic, casual linen shirt, I really liked the construction with the self-facing front… and last, but not least; my man was happy with it :) (but refused to model it for the pictures -sorry)
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
