Fitted Shirt Pattern Sizing:
38-50. I made a 42. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
The design of the shirt was exactly the same. I made view B with the tabs. Were the instructions easy to follow?
This was my first Burda Style pattern and the instructions were okay. The way they had me attach the collar was new and it took me reading it several times before I even wanted to attempt it. In the end everything went together without any major issues. Here is more info about the collar. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the design of this pattern. There is not a thing I dislike about it. My only issue with this version is all the ripples from topstitching. I think it was because of the fabric since the black did not ripple at all once topstitched. Fabric Used:
2.5 yards of green cotton left over from a dress I made myself and 1 yard of black cotton left over from a ren faire costume. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn't make any pattern alterations but I did change the color scheme. I did the main portion of the shirt in the green. The yoke, underside of the collar, and pocket are all in black. I also did the tabs to have one side green and one side black. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew this again. This is a pretty casual shirt for my husband so he is not able to wear it to work. I want to make a dressier version that he will be able to wear. I also want to make this in a solid color. Conclusion:
I am quite surprised that I am the first review of this pattern. I really didn't like this shirt when I started due to my husbands color choices. It started out feeling like something Charlie Sheen character would wear on Two and Half Men. But once I finished it that changed. I actually really liked it once DH put it on.
