A shirt for my husband, made with Kaffe Fasset shot cotton in the color Persimmon. The pattern is my true and tested Negroni pattern that I’ve used about five times now, this time with double pockets and flap. I added a small detail on the sleeve hem, following a tutorial on this Lichen shot cotton shirt by Carolyn. You might even see that the whole shirt is inspired by Carolyn’s shirt, down to the shot cotton and the pockets (^_^;)
The topstitching is orange red, and the thread used for this shirt is one of the 104 Mettler thread spools that I won in Burdastyle’s Holiday Giveaway. They are really a dream to sew with! I’ve used them for various projects and still have lots of unused spools.
