You're a -beginner-?? I got to get myself those Islander videos! You did a great job, most people would be so lucky to even be able to buy pockets that perfectly matched... I do agree about lighter interfacing though - I've found my own shirts improved when I lighted up. That tailoring stuff will keep a winter coat in order, so you need nothing of the sort in a shirt.

I have this pattern and you've inspired me to make it for my husband. I have the material, buttons and no excuses. Great job on your shirt.
