This is my second button down dress shirt I’ve completed. I made this one for my youngest brother as a Christmas present. I used a more classic design than the earlier one I made (although still very similar), again using my own pattern. What is different in this one is the use of flatfell seams, which worked out very well, and the addition of a shoulder yoke in the design. I also made this to have a more tailored fit.
