What are you most proud of? Everything! The fit. The quality of my stitching. My precision. I certainly took more care with this one and everything fitted together perfectly!Oh, and I love the three buttons on each cuff. Not sure if you can see it properly in the photo, but I thought it would give it a more feminine look! Very pleased!PS: now that we're talking about buttons, Pam recommended a spacing of 4" (10cm) between each button but mine are set at 8cm. I'm happy with this overall look.If it interests you, feel free to read more about my sewing adventures at my blog: http://snazzysewnsew.wordpress.com/

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy it. There's nothing hard about this one and within a couple of days you'll have a gorgeous garment you can wear. I have already bought and washed my next shirt fabric and can't wait to get started!

Nice job. May I ask what pattern you used for this?

Sometimes I wonder how I managed to make that pattern look decent, but I did!!! Haha. Thanks!

Lovely fit you have got over that shirt !! Kudos :) By the way does this class require us to have a shirt pattern of our own ? I dont see anything mentioned anywhere about the pattern used ..

Oh my... I'm so sorry for not responding (8 months ago??) I never received notification of your comment! I think the class recommends a couple of patterns to use.

Absolutely beautiful! This shirt just made up my mind which class to take next! So many beautiful shirts profiled here. I didn't see the pattern number. Can you please share that with me. Also..I am limited to one fabric store and they have almost nothing in apparel fabric. Is there a reputable online fabric store that might carry this beautiful fabric? Sorry for the long post, but this shirt has REALLY inspired me..LOL Thanks, Betty-craftsy sewing student
