Nice looking shirt! And no, I didn't notice the button boo-boo till you mentioned it, lol. Congrats on finding the perfect shirt for your man!

Great shirt - definitely a keeper! I've made this pattern approximately 15 times for my DH2B and his twin brother, and they love them. To get the close fit without sacrificing movement, stretch woven fabrics are fantastic. (Incidentally, the first time I made this for DH2B, I accidentally put the buttonholes on the wrong side. He jokingly refers to it as his "blouse", but still wears it!)

No Lorna, I haven't tried it. I'll put it into the queue. I still have a pile of men's patterns to evaluate. :-) Although I'm partial to Burda at this point, I would like to give Jalie and Wild Ginger a shot, too.

Have you tried the man's shirt in one of the WOF prior to Christmas? There was a narrow fitted shirt there but I have not tried it yet ...

I had to go back and look again to notice the uneven spacing of the buttons. Just make sure you claim it's a special designer look! It's so nice to make something that's appreciated, and looks good. I really don't need another men's shirt pattern, but this would look good on my skinny sons...

Hi ceri, my cats feel the same way. They (literally) spend all day and night up there. that's the life... too bad I don't get to spend many daylight hours at home :-(

Love the shirt and the view from your balcony (-: I'd set up my sewing machine there so I could be inspired by the view!

I have this pattern, so it's good to see the favorable review. David Coffin is the book, I believe.

Let me guess - it buttons the wrong way?? I always have to double-check that one when I make men's shirts! Looking forward to the photo - and many more shirts.

Thanks for the review! You mentioned a photo, but I don't see it posted. (pampeliska ...DBF = Darling Boy Friend).

Hi pampeliska, I will look into Cuffin's book! Thank you!

DBF means dear brothers fellow? Well, having a small ironing business I see perfect fitted shirts with different details almost every day, lovely! My dream is to make the same i see. Haven't looked for fashion fabric, batist or something like that until now. CHemisiere is the proffession, isn't it? Cuffin's book for men's shirt is a big inspiration for me. Haven't started yet, twistedangel, you give me a great push to start. Burda MWF from aug 03 has shirt, trousers and coat for men in it.
