this superfine cotton has been bought by me in arabia last winter on a market for 1 euro per meter. i had initially 5 colors, but one of them, i gave to a friend, so i ended up, doing 4 shortsleeved shirts for me and my hubby for the (not-exisiting) summer 2011.
i used the mccalls M6044 pattern and have been superhappy with it. very easy, very well explained, and i did only one change, as i love the shirts of karl lagerfeld for their high colar so much, i did played around with it a little and this is, what came out of it.
again, my lovely mashine helped me to add my little speciality, the monogramm……….
sorry, that the pix are a bit strange, but my husband is away and i had to do them myself, jumping between the camera and in front of it (you should have seen that :-))))
