What a great first project! Looks like you made some major points with your FIL.

I agree, go down a size and surprise him for Christmas. Or, find another pattern that is well reviewed and when you get it lay out the pattern pieces from this shirt to compare them. I bet you find that he needs a smaller size plus you would get a pattern with much better instructions. And, I agree, if anyone cared so much about something cotton I made them that they wore it and then drycleaned it to make it last longer, I would be in shock! You are lucky to have a SOMEONE in your family that appreciates your skill! (gee, maybe you could begin a tradition of making "occasion" shirts for him for BD or X-Mas... a turkey fabric for Thanksgiving, pumpkins for halloween, flags for July 4th, bunnies for Easter (lol).

Great job - shirts are not that easy! I just took a peek at the pattern back, and this shirt has at least 10" of ease in size XL, which is a lot! For some reason men's patterns tend to be very baggy. You could easily go down a size next time to get a better fit. He looks like he would like another shirt for Christmas. :-)
