Description

This is a shirt I made for my stepdad using some beautiful Italian cotton shirting from Mood Fabrics. I used the Colette Negroni pattern as I liked the modern cut and excellent instructions but drafted my own front button placket and collar with stand based on an existing ready to wear shirt. I also added slots to the undercollar so it can hold stays/bones. The stripe matching was a challenge for me but I’m really pleased with it! Full details can be found on my blog here http://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/striped-italian-cotton-shirt.html

      Thank you! I’m very proud of it! I think it helped that I was making it as a gift so I was determined to get every little bit just right!
