Hi Sew4real. Thanks for the compliment. DH is short for 'dear husband'. All the best.

Your husband's pictures are priceless...he's clearly enjoying this and having fun being admired by you. Totally sweet and endearing---and a great shirt to boot!

Love the shirt! I'm new to this, what does DH stand for?

Great job! Yes, this pattern does seem to run wide, but so do most for my trim kids and DH. Yours looks great!!!

Hi tigergirl, I'll keep you in mind:) I'm also a bit like his partner.

Love it. Great fabric - if for some reason he gets sick of it, how about you send it to Brissy? I know someone here that would like it but his partner is far too selfish with her sewing time to make him one.

That shirt does seem perfect for your DH. Good job coordinating that!

Thanks all. He may end up doing his fabric shopping without me:D That would be a first.

What a great shirt! And I'm so impressed with your pattern matching across the front placket. DH looks very happy.

Oh, how nice! It looks great and so does he. And yes, you have created a monster! I made my DH his first shirt about 5 years ago and he now has probably 20 or more......he actually likes fabric shopping now....for himself!

What a great shirt! It is easy to tell that your husband is VERY pleased with it. Wish my sons and husband would be as happy to model in the garments I make for them! Very nice work!
