I made this shirt just to try something new. It’s based on Simplicity’s 2447 pattern view F. It’s two yards of fabric I found on sale. I originally cut a size 10 but it was so boxy I kept altering it until I found the fit I like without it being too snug. My son saw it and asked if I could make him a shirt cut for a guy and I took that as a good sign.
Anyways, I will be making more shirts. I love the way it hits my hips and the sleeve length is just right.
