|I've been wanting to construct some men's shirts for myself and decided to practice a little.|
The fabric I used was a cotton shirting from Fishman's in Chicago. Great store but pricey.
The only modification I made was lengthen the hem by two inches. I cut a size 40 which is a wee bit too small for me. BUT remember I was just practicing. (smile)
The pattern calls for a separate front placket. I would change this to a cut on placket to save time.
I wanted to play around with some leather so I used some pieces that i had from an old leather coat I got for free from a coat closet. (smile)
Instructions are easy to follow and this shirt can easily be made in an afternoon. As always with mens shirts...getting precise stitching, especially around the stand, is crucial.
It was cool to make!
