fist attempt at a shirt , used some vile polycotton, and like a million buttons,, its ok bit butch i think but taught me heaps next one will be better, 2nd adult progect,, phew,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, its from 04/09 105 looks better but similar to model,, helps if your 6ft tall and 14 yrs old i think
areas i struggled with sewing on millions of buttons, millions of button holes,, the collar stand,, the cuffs,, the setting in of sleeves,,, apart from that it was a breeze ..yeah right

    You did great! You’re awsome! I am still at the below novice level, I can’t wait till I can make a “real” shirt with buttonholes, collars, and sleeves, like yours. You inspire me to be brave and take on the challenge.
