Quebec, Canada






Men’s shirt based on my own pattern. I wanted a shirt with a wide neck but still with a full collar, a low straight hem so the shirt can be worn both out and tucked in, and a wider button strip than is usual – I’m a big guy, and I don’t like it when the shirt opens between buttons and shows skin. The collar front is a little too low here, next time I will make it a little higher, but everything else went well.

Material Notes

Striped rayon fabric, thread, buttons, “fray check”, red cotton facing, interfacing

    This is great! I love long sleeve button up shirts made from patterned fabric, instead of boring solid colors. And it’s great that you altered the classic design to be what you wanted it to be.

    This shirt looks really good and I’m impressed it was made from your own pattern.
