Well I wasn't sure I would like it but when I saw it 'dressed up' I do like it. The shirt is a strong colour and has distinctive design lines so I think that was why I was a bit worried while I was making it. BTW, I hadn't really pressed it well before this photo session as I decided to try it on and then thought I may as well photograph it straight away. That probably shows how happy I am with it.
I love the buttons on this shirt. Caity helped me choose them and they are the colour of the darker shades in the cotton. However I cannot get a photo of them close-up so I cannot show them to you in detail.
This shirt is not for beginners but is well drafted and has really interesting design features. I would recommend a muslin first as it would be difficult to tissue fit. Anyway I am hooked on shirts now and want to start another way straight away - a BWOF pattern and some chambray fabric with shell buttons.
