Men's Dress Shirt
Found this great blog called Male Pattern Boldness a few weeks ago. Blogger Peter Lappin recently hosted a Men's Shirt Sew-Along, which unfortunately I missed. But, I was inspired by all the fabulous shirts and decided to give a try. So here is my try. It was not as complicated as I thought it would be. I thought the collar would be the most challenging part, but in the end it was the sleeves that gave me trouble. I had to rip the seam out about four times. I used McCall's Pattern 6044. I am planning on making a long sleeved version and would treat the seams differently next time.
PS. I do get credit in my sewing class for the collar.
