What materials did you use? Cotton with slight stretch, buttons and thread - all from my stash!!

What are you most proud of? The fit is great - I used my stash - again - and I have a nice business shirt - to wear with either sjpkirts or my suits. I normally would pay $249 for a business shirt, this one cost me three hours of time, and $20 as I purchased the fabric at half price.

Great job! Thanks for sharing. I agree with you it's much more fun to use 'real' fabric when trying out a pattern. I find I'm more careful and get a better read of the fit.

Me too! I'm not inspired by muslin at all! I look like a curtain and feel like a curtain in it! That's what it's used for in NZ - curtain backing!!!

The shaping of the shirt front is very nice. I agree, muslins have not been overly helpful and I hate the time spent working on one. Thanks for posting.

Hi!. Great shirt, I love the way you placed the stripes! You can tell that you thought about how you wanted to cut it out.. I'm sure that you will really get a lot of chances to wear it. Thanks or posting your picture:-)) Pam

Making tailored clothes has always scared me a bit. This is a terrific class and seeing your wonderful results is inspiring. Thank you for posting.
