Men's Shirt 1

Added Jan 25, 2013

Macau, Macao






I made this shirt especially for my husband Jose, a formal short sleeve shirt for him to wear at work. I used 100% white cotton with light stripes. I copied his old shirt size 17 as the pattern. It was a little bit challenging than what I thought to work with a men’s shirt. But anyway I have done my work nicely and my husband loved it.

    Really well-made. I’m trying to find the courage to make a men’s shirt myself. Don’t have the confidence yet.

    I like how the collar looks. What did you use as interfacing?
