I know what you are thinking...What?! It's not a dress??! Well, from time to time I make creations for other people that aren't dresses.
So... this shirt was made almost two years ago...yes, you read that right ..TWO years ago. Shame on me. BUT today I finished it. Yay for me! More to the point ...Yay for Husband!
The shame comes from the fact that I only had the buttons left to sew on. I put the entire shirt together and then stopped at the buttons? Really? It's not like I came to a particularly difficult part in the construction and stopped...it was buttons for heavens sake.
My husband is a patient man.
So on to the pattern... if I can remember. I used McCalls 6044. All I really remember is that I lengthened the body and the sleeves for my tall husband and that I enjoyed making this shirt. This is a good pattern to start with if it's your first attempt at a shirt. It doesn't have a back yoke and the cuffs were a simpler construction.
Pattern: McCalls 6044
Fabric used: A checked shirting.
Instructions: I don't remember having any difficulty with this pattern and found it enjoyable.
Changes I made: Husband is tall so I added length to the bodice and to the sleeves. I can't remember how much exactly but I know that I took Husband's measurements before cutting it out.
Repeat worthy? I would like to make this shirt again, except next time I would finish it quicker!!
Handsome wasn't home to model his shirt so I put it on my dress form but she doesn't do it justice at all. Maybe he will model it for a pic when he wears it for the first time. Maybe...
