Your dad's shirt looks great. I am sure he will be thrilled! Thanks for the nice review. If I understand your yoke description it sounds like the way I do yokes. I got it out of a Claire Shaffer book (I think), or maybe it was my KS pattern.....anyway, I agree, it works great.

Wow, this looks really nice! And you described the yoke trick very well. Maybe you can combine (maybe grade? ) a few of the things you like from this pattern to the one that fits your DH-like the collar and the no-hand-sewing methods. Thank for the review, and for the comparisons!

I agree that's a great pattern. I really like the yoke method too. I made the long sleeves and the placket instructions are good also.

Someday my DH will get this top made for him, since I have this pattern. Nice of you to make the top for your DDad.

Well, it looks like you did a great job and I just might get a copy of this pattern for that machine sewn yoke technique. I just did one of those McCalls patterns that says it is machine sewn too, and you end up doing the yoke and cuffs and collars all slipstitched by hand! I think it was good you used your intuition about the buttons. So often it pays to question some of the ways the pattern says to do something. Thanks for the review!

Great shirt! And good idea about making the pocket larger since Dad's a big guy!

Nice review and nice shirt. Thanks for all the details. I'm still trying to get up nerve to do a shirt for my DH.
