Yay! I had this book for years before trying any of the pieces, and yes, the photos are kind of timeless (and by that I mean "dated"), but they are very basic garments and you have lots of options. I thought the pieces I made were a bit boxy as you did, but still very very wearable. And great learning projects. I like your shirt very much, you look great -- sleeve length is quite nice actually, you can easily change that next time around.
