A shirt for Simon

A shirt for Simon

Now I have officially sewn clothing for my entire family. I’m feeling pretty good about this first shirt attempt for Simon.

It’s less fitted than I would like, but better fitted than a lot of his store bought shirts, so I’m calling this a success. I’ll take the man and the shirt to sewing class to see how the fit can be improved on his next one.

Instead of reading the Burda directions I followed Pam Howard’s Craftsy course. She is not quite as efficient in delivering information as Janet Pray, but the course was informative and pleasant to watch. She has a very calming manner. She includes a lot of hand sewn details, which I did for this shirt, but I would skip for my next. My favorite part of this shirt is the pocket, sewn perfectly following Pam’s instructions.
