Here is my first shirt – its not perfect, but I’m really happy with it.

I modified the Lydia pattern by straightening the sides, adding cuffs, and making a collar with snaps.

Material Notes

thermal knit and a regular knit on the cuffs

    Nice job on the adaptation. I like both the cuffs and the snaps. We should have a “tinkering with men’s shirt design club”… we might start a trend!

    This is a very innovative idea that you have put into 3-D! Very impressed!

    Great job! The colour looks good on you and I like the contrast ribbing on the sleeves.

    Hey Jeffrey, Respect!, Great variation of that shirt!, did you have to do some changes for the chest area? I also wanted to give you heads up that we have the first men’s patterns arriving in the spring. I will see to get them out to you as soon as possible. They are basics, so there will be lots of room for you to be creative. Nora was saying that you left her a message on her wall, with a question about a pattern. I will get back to you about that this afternoon. Happy Holidays!! Benedikta

    You’re brilliant! Who would have thought that Lydia can turn into men’s shirt?? And you even attempted polo closure in knit, wow. (I did it but it was the painful experience)

    Great shirt! I hadn’t thought of modifying Lydia into a men’s shirt…what a brilliant idea! I guess now I don’t have the excuse of “no patterns” and need to make something for my fiance! Any other suggestions for altering this pattern?
