Madras shirt

This is actually the second muslin for my husband’s shirt. I made sloping shoulder adjustment and shortened the shoulder a bit.

My husband doesn’t like to wear plaid fabric, but I always think that he would look good in plaids though. So I used this opportunity to make him wear them by making a muslin shirt from madras fabric.

The fit is definitely better than the first muslin. The shoulder length seems good to my eye and my husband said that the shirt is comfortable. The better thing is he actually liked this shirt and wore it to the office just after we finished taking pictures!

    You may need to make him an entire wardrobe.
