So very professional. Thank you for such a thorough review and all the hints about the packets and such. I'll definitely bookmark this review. Now if I can only get DH to stop wearing T-shirts to work.

What a wonderful review. Your shirts look great! I learned that in-seam sleeve placket from one of Nancy Zieman's books (I think she ws a student of Barbara Hellyer) and use it for all my long sleeve blouses and shirts. I have read Hellyer's original Sewing Magic book, but didn't know there was a sequel. Sherril, make your husband one custom shirt, and he will be hooked:).

What a beautiful shirt, Liana! I loved the glimpse into your DH's closet - those bright colors are wonderful. I too make my DH's shirts - once you start they won't let you stop. :-)

Really nice. I've always considered men's shirts a real test of skill because everyone knows what they should look like.I have made them for my husband, but he has a hard time visualizing what fabric on the bolt would look like as a shirt. He'd rather pick them out already made.

Lovely sewing, Liana! Your thorough review has me considering making shirts for DH. Thanks for the book reference. I'll be looking for that one.

Beautiful job, Liana! Great review - I'll bookmark it too, just for the tips! And your handsome model looks extremely happy in his custom shirt(s)!

These are gorgeous, Liana, and the details are meticulous. I'm so grateful you posted this review today, as I've spent the afternoon with my nose buried in _Shirtmaking_ by David Coffin in preparation for starting KS 2777 for my hubby. I especially appreciate the detailed tips!

That's a lot of shirts! I showed my DH, and told him don't hold his breath before I make that many. (I thought I was doing well making him a t-shirt, too.) ;) I think that is the same interfacing I used for DH's tie.

Liana, what a great review and so many wonderful shirts. I make shirts for my husband, but my collars are starting turn up after many washings. I will for sure try the Pellon. I second Gigi's comment about once you start they won't let you stop! My husband hates wearing RTW:) Good luck at the fair!

I clicked on this review to see the pattern you used for your husband's pajama shirt. WOW! What a treat. The photo with the glimpse into his closet is so impressive. I know he must be so proud to have so many beautiful shirts sewn by you!
