Here is my third attempt at the Jakob-Vietnamese cross men’s shirt pattern. It’s almost perfected this time. Perhaps I should just call it the Nigel (my man’s name).
I didn’t try any added extras on this one. Oh, except maybe sewing the buttons on with a bird-claw type pattern. I just love the bubbly blue-on-brown of the fabric though. The blue is raised slightly which adds a nice texture.
Now that I’ve done this three times it is just so quick to whip up. Thank goodness, because I’ve got about 5 other sets of fabric set aside for more shirts. What a lucky man!
