Description

Made using Burda 7767, with the following modifications; a long curved hem, two added breast pockets with asymmetrical flaps, the use of navy blue snaps in lieu of buttons.
This shirt was quite a challenge because of the random crazy creases that have been heat-set into this striped fabric, and the fact it is slightly stretchy as well. Probably not the best fabric choice for a tailored shirt but good for a young bloke, and thankfully he loves his shirt!
