Wonderful shirt and the stripe placement lifts it into a whole other category of gorgeousness.

Beautiful shirt and fantastic use of stripes. I loved that pattern when I saw it and am glad to see it made up.

Beautiful. A tribute to the importance and effectiveness of planning and placement at the cutting stage. This is technically high quality and still artistic work. Thanks for sharing!

This is a truly lovely looking shirt - definitely not the run of the mill ho-hum kind. Must try this pattern!!

your attention to detail, and the pix to show the details made this a great review. Also, I see how well you kept everything pressed - a key to working with stripes

Thanks so much for the review and step-by-step. I have this pattern in my queue and you've just answered a lot of questions for me.

That looks very nice, I have this pattern and I am waiting for the perfect fabric. You should show us a picture of the back.
