What materials did you use? Fabric remnant- cotton, lightweight

What are you most proud of? On this shirt I'm very proud of the pockets - my first time - and the buttonholes. Also on this shirt I adjusted the pattern to allow for my forward rotated shoulders. Still having problems with getting the collar band just right.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Shirt making isn't as hard as it seems, especially following Pam's instructions. Give it a try you will become addicted.

Hi Calumn! Another great shirt! I really appreciate that you decided to change your plan and make the shirt a short sleeve version instead of scrapping it due to a cutting error. You turned this into an opportunity for a design change :-)) Great pockets and buttonholes! Thanks so much, Pam

Thank you! The fabric is a cotton remnant I got from a fabulous store here in Vegas - Heddi's.
