I made this shirt for my boyfriend using the AMAZING “Shirtmaking” book by David Page Coffin as my guide. I also drafted my own sleeve placket according to his instructions and flat felled all the seams. I’ve documented all of this (with loads more photos) at http://www.fehrtrade.com/gallery/115/i-love-a-man-in-yellow
