lovely job on the shirt, especially view B. I have made B in black and white stripes and could not get the chevron effect due to the stripes not meeting in the centre, so I added black bias binding to the front edge and cuffs (normal not Frenched) I get alot of favourable comments when I wear it. However found the collar was not straightforward, the collar and band did not seem the right size for each other, anyone else notice this?

I just got this pattern in a lot of Burdas i won on ebay. I wasn't too excited about this view on the envelope (I think the necktie detracts from it), but I LOVE your shirt, and I will definitely have to give it a go!

Thank you for your review! I wanted a basic fitted shirt pattern and when I saw this I thought it would fit the bill. Your's looks great. I love the bias front and the larger cuffs.

Eodwif, what a wonderful shirt and darling child, too. Thanks for writing the review and I hope you write many more! I love the bias cut - makes the fabric interesting and you did a great job of lining up the chevron.

Your shirt looks so good! I love these type shirts, and plan to make some soon. I found some opaque stretch shirting in NYC at B and J, as well as other just scrumptous shirtitngs I am still lusting after!

Lovely shirt, Eodwif. I made a similar Burda pattern a few months ago that I just love. Like you, I found that the sizing ran large. And like you, I had to read the instructions several times to comprehend: some of the techniques were a little out of the ordinary. Love the way you did the front!

An attractive shirt you have made. It looks good on you. Is the front cut on the bias?
Chandra said... (12/6/03 10:28 PM) Reply
The shirt fits great! I can't wait until I am skilled enough to make one like that...
