For some strange reason, I’ve always wanted a large plaid lumberjack-style button-down shirt to layer over other shirts. And when I saw the designer Phillip Lim’s crazy coloured plaid shirts, I was like, “I want to make one!” Using a 1m remnant to make a pattern that requires just under 2m, AND matching side seam plaids was deathly, but by making it short sleeved I pulled it off. First attempt at collars, sleeves, and buttonholes, which were all kind of scary but worth it.
