The burrito technique is magic -- I'll never make another shirt without a double-sided yoke.

Great shirts, and thanks for the review! I would never have guessed that this was for women, too.

Nice shirt. I love the description of the "burrito" yoke technique.

Thanks for this review. I've heard good things about the Islander system instructions. Nice that it includes a separate front for women since we have a different build!

Very nice! That's generous of you to make your boss a shirt. He should love it.

Cool to read a review of this Islander pattern, and a glowing one at that. I've been wondering if I should add this one to my collection, and your review is kind of tipping the scales. A question for you: Does the shirt have a fairly dropped shoulder?
