My son is 6'7" and 300lbs, this shirt looks like it might work for him! I love the fabric you chose, great shirt!

Beautiful shirt! Like others, I LOVE the bias button band. It totally makes the shirt. Great job.

Sherril, what I should have said is that I currently have shirting fabric bought for at least 3 more. I suspect that when I (hopefully) get pregnant, I'll be sewing a ton of these for him. ;)

Great job on those bias details. Why stop at 3 more. You could probably stop buying RTW since he loves the way this one fits. Just shop for great shirting. BTW, Michael Levines has great shirtings right now.

It's all been said, but it bears repeating!

I, too, like the bias pockets. This looks like a nice shirt!

Wow, great to know it already accommodates a full abdomen - that's where my DH needs extra room. Thanks for the review. Love the bias accents, too.

Super to have a basic pattern that you can use to make DH so many different shirts. I really like how you put the pockets on the bias.

Great shirt! Great idea to put the design details on the bias. It gives just the right amount of fashion to the shirt without going overboard.

Wonderful! I'm in the market for such a shirt pattern and you have singlehandedly sold me on this one! Excellent project and review--glad to have read it. (I especially like the thoughtful look on your husband's face, "No, I don't believe I've seen the puddy tat," even while the cat's tail is sticking out behind him!!!)

Great shirt, and seems the cat likes it too ;-)
