He picked the fabric himself and did a mighty fine job if I do say so myself. A nice brown check cotton and some pinwale cord for the yokes. This is the result of the better part of a days sewing (and fighting with the sleeve plackets. For some reason the instructions seemed REALLY confusing, but when I read them now they make perfect sense.... idiot!)
Here is shirt #1:
And Shirt #2 from a cotton voile with olive green, blue, black & white checks:
This one is not finished yet as you may be able to tell by the raggedy anne sleeves (look ma' no hands!) and the lack of buttons...
These came together quite quickly and he has already worn the brown one (yes in public) so he must like it a little bit....
I will be posting again later with a catch up post on some older projects.... I'm off to the sewing room AKA "the abyss" or "black hole" haha
