my biggest mistake

Remscheid/ Rotte...






I went on with my obsession for shirts and it seems that I went mad. I am not happy with the way I played with the directions of the fabric’s pattern. I think it is much too ‘busy’. To me it looks a kind of cheep. But maybe some of you will like it. It’s just a matter of taste :-)

    Nice shirt and how the blue was use to contrast, it really makes it pop

    I love that shirt, I’m always buying my fiance crazy looking dress shirts. Hmmm, I never tried to make him one, maybe I should. Thanks for the inspiration, job well done!

      Thank you for the kind compliment. Give it a try, a man shirt isn’t more difficult than a blouse.

    The shirt looks great! Take a look at the "Leg O’ Mutton " sleeves from the 1890’s. These were cut on the bias! Keep up the good work.

    I love it !! I like how you cut the sleeves on the bias and I definitely like the plain blue contrast. This is not over the top and you should be proud wearing this.
