Looks cool, with groovy details!

That looks like a great shirt! This is the first shirt pattern I've seen in a while that looks like something my husband would actually wear.

I love it! And I'm sure that my husband will, too.

I like that it goes to a XXL (chest 52). Good size range.
I have a Kwik Sew to learn how to make a men's shirt, but this might be the next stop.

I ordered it.

My son and I were having a conversation yesterday about the shirt of his dreams and lo and behold! Here it is today! If I get a favorable result I'll post it.

Exactly. It has the nice style/details of a Burda shirt, but I won't have to do a ridiculous amount of grading up for it to fit my husband.

He's offline right now, so I didn't even run it by him, but I already ordered the pattern and plan to make up a few of these while I'm off from work between Christmas and New Year's.

Sounds cool! I look forward to the forthcoming reviews from all of you!

I'm glad I never put money on you making the crepe dress first, because I would've been some cash if I had!

The Crepe pattern came out when I was super-strapped for cash, and since then, it's been too friggin' cold to think about making anything with short sleeves.

The Lady Grey coat, on the other hand, is *very* tempting to me right now.

Has it been that cold in SoCal? I've been cold here. My toes, especially, haven't been warm in over a week. So I haven't really seriously thought about the crepe in a while.

The Lady Grey coat is nice, but I think it would look terrible on me. So I haven't ordered it. There have been some really gorgeous versions of it here though.
