Pattern Sizing:MUU(34-36-38-40), MXX(40-42-44-46) I made size 42 for my husband.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes. I made view A.
Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I love the finished seams on this pattern. It's very easy to whip up and looks really clean when it's done. No dislikes for this one.
Fabric Used:Handkerchief linen from Grey Line Linens in NY.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I only had to add one inch to the length for my husband. I decided to serge the sleeve and lower hems instead of turning them back 1/4 inch to finish them, it's easier and looks just as nice.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I am going to sew it again, I have another one cut right now. I would definitely recommend this pattern to others.
Conclusion: Awesome shirt pattern. My husband really likes it. It's easy to sew and it's basic enough to be able to modify the details if you like. I like that it could be sewn up in a variety of fabrics for different looks. Here's a link to my blog post with more pics of this shirt - Blog post
