I just finished a new shirt for myself, using a TNT shirt pattern from PatternMaster Boutique. The contrasts were inspired by a shirt created by Pam Erny (from off-the-cuff style). It turned out very nicely, is very comfortable, and will be a mainstay in my closet for sure!

Pictures and more on my blog!

That turned out so nicely! Are you going to do a pattern review? I certainly hope so becauseit might just be someone else's inspiration!

I saw that posting on Pam's blog, the shirt she made is a stand out -- I really liked the contrasting buttonholes, too. I have been playing around with contrast fabric on men's shirts for a couple of years now, since my husband brought home some RTW shirts with similar treatment. I have even started a stash box of suitable fabric - whenever I cut something and there is a yard or less left over I set it aside for shirt trimming.

Welmoud, your shirt looks great.....adding a little interest to a plain shirt makes is special and unique, a big benefit of sewing. Thanks for sharing.

2012 : starting stash 386, net additions 206, used 164, ending stash 428...I'm never going to get in front of this pile of fabric!

It's good to push yourself. I find I learn more when I do that. Love the subtle contrast.
