this is my first attempt to make French seems and I am happy with it. Buttonholes are handmade. It is the best color I ever made :-)
material costs less than 7 euro

    A M A Z I N G . I dream about men’s shirts like this. Did you sew the button holes by hand? How on earth did you make the holes so tidy and neat? The stitching is beautiful. Love subtle print. Your projects are inspiring!

      thank you so much for your compliments :-) each buttonhole takes about 20 minutes to sew but it is worth.

      thank you :-)
      it is woth to do it by hand, much better! But it takes nearly as long as sewing the rest of the shirt :-(
