My boyfriend is quite skinny so I had to grade the pattern down 2 sizes. So glad it worked! Was my first attempt at this pattern and the first time I have had to grade a pattern down almost completely.
And I must say – I was a little scared of sewing my first shirt but it wasn’t as hard as I imagined it would be! It all went pretty smoothly.
