Muddy Waters Shirt

Here is my third attempt at the Jakob-Vietnamese cross men’s shirt pattern. It’s almost perfected this time. Perhaps I should just call it the Nigel (my man’s name).

I didn’t try any added extras on this one. Oh, except maybe sewing the buttons on with a bird-claw type pattern. I just love the bubbly blue-on-brown of the fabric though. The blue is raised slightly which adds a nice texture.

Now that I’ve done this three times it is just so quick to whip up. Thank goodness, because I’ve got about 5 other sets of fabric set aside for more shirts. What a lucky man!

    great job. i’m currently working on collared shirts for friends of mine who battle to find shirts that fit them. i’m really enjoying the fastidiousness of it though – i’m a real sucker for punishment.

    I like the effect of the bird-claw pattern on the buttons! Great shirt – nice to see men’s stuff up here too.

    Very nice job on the details! Some years ago I made some jackets and shirts, and I have no trouble remembering how difficult it was, so once again: Good job!! :-) The model fits you quite well and i love the cufflinks (they’re called something like that, aren’t they? :-) )
