I like the looks of this stripe detail too - especially how the sleeves & body create a cool design! The vicadin didn't slow you down much, good job!

This shirt is cool. Being a guy who sews is somewhat hard. I would like to learn to make a dress shirt. I can not seem to find patterns that are cool for guys that are at my level. I have never done a dress shirt before and would like to learn. your review notes that it is not a beginner pattern. Any suggestions on one that would be?

I am wanting to make just a plain mens shirt with a pocket. Since you have experience could you send me a good simple easy pattern to start out with. my email address is
