Making a shirt – no swearing involved – work in progresss


I never made a “grown-up shirt”. Not one with buttons, long sleeves, or  all the basic details  a shirt has.  So I decided to give it a try.

I am working with this pattern from Burda (5.08) and using cotton and for now – it’s not that bad.


So here’s a peek of the work in progress. (Feel free to point out he mistakes, you win points:)

The buttonholes and buttons should be hidden, but I have a funny feeling about it. We’ll see.

Actually I have a feeling this will be a wear-under-sweater shirt, but if it leads to me mastering this pattern it’s still ok.
