One comment I have on Burda Patterns is that the pocket always seems high. What was your opinion on pocket placement?

Thanks sofietje, he loves the shirt! The feel of the linen is very different from ordinary cotton shirts. I'm planning to make more - I'm sure they'll be cool in our hot humid summer weather.

I think the photo (even with the wrinkles) is a big compliment. It looks like your husband enjoys wearing the shirt.

Thanks for all the positive feedback! Peter, I used Mettler 100% cotton embroidery thread instead of my usual Mettler 100% Silk Finish sewing thread (wouldn't have tried this if I hadn't read about it in David Page Coffin's book). I found it made the topstitching look much better. I chose a medium grey - best match for the khaki.

I love your photo album -- thanks for posting it! As someone who makes mens shirts, this is SO helpful. I really appreciate all the details about creating seams in particular. The collar looks fantastic and your stitches are beautiful. What kind of thread did you use for this shirt, by the way. Great job!

Great fit on him. Nice job. My husband also needs an athletic tapering at the waist... Thanks for the review.

You fixed it! I can click the photo, and it's a beautiful, classic-looking shirt! Nice job, and I bet your dh is just delighted with it.

Hi, I'm still a newbie at posting reviews, am trying to make the photo clickable...

love it, can you make it so we can click on the picture?? It looks amazing and I want to make one for my husband!

Ditto Elona's comments... I would love to see the details. We are all voyeurs here it would seem... Shirt looks great, even in miniature. Thanks for sharing.

The shirt sounds as though it's beautiful; certainly your choice of fabric and construction techniques are terrific--and I'd really love to see them. But the "project photo" is not clickable, and the details simply cannot be seen without that or a link to a photo somewhere else on the web. Could you supply us with a clickable pic, pretty please?
