Pattern Description: Mens Shirts with collar and collar band, front band, pockets and sleeve variations.

Pattern Sizing: XM (Sml-Med-Lrg) Three sizes provided in the pattern envelope. I made the Large. I think it is also available with (XL, XXL and XXXL)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, apart from my alterations.

Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't really follow the instructions. I used this pattern in a Craftsy Class "The Classic Tailored Shirt" with Pam Howard.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved the slim fit of the shirt and the collar and collar band. I didn't like the fact that it doesn't have a back yoke and it doesn't do proper sleeve plackets.

Fabric Used: I used a 100% cotton shirting purchased from Spotlight. This was a lovely soft fabric and a dream to press and sew.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made several changes to the pattern. I eliminated the front band by cutting the front band and the front piece as one. I redrafted the back to create a separate yoke and yoke facing, and I did a tower placket on the sleeve. I also lengthened the sleeve by 6cm. My partner does have extra long arms.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is the second time I have made this shirt and I am sure it won't be the last.

Conclusion: With a few modifications, I have made this pattern into a real wardrobe builder. See more info and photos on my blog Sew, Jean Margaret

What a nice result. Looks like a perfect fit to me - I have long arms too and it is so nice to wear a sleeve that fits. I have enrolled in that Craftsy class too. As soon as my sewing machine gets back from servicing I will dive in!

The shirt looks great! The changes you made really amped up this pattern into a real classic.
