Shirt for a Handsome Man

Added Mar 2, 2017

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






This shirt is based on BurdaStyle pattern 06/2016 #143, but I chose to make it with long sleeves,
then it’s more wearable at this time of year :) I have just added some small details with orange button holes
and the white fabric inside the collar.

    I can imagine that this one requires really lots of work….It looks like professional work! I’ve never tried something similar and at the moment my three men only complain about missing shirt buttons…And I hate sewing buttons….
