What materials did you use? Printed Plaid Flanelette

zinc6 on craftsy.com

What are you most proud of? matching the plaids and the tower plackets - first shirt with proper cuffs.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Flanelette is easy to work with as it is easy to ease around curves - but it is more bulky than plain woven shirt fabric.

Love this shirt. Really like the fabric on bias.

Thanks Scheri ... the shirt is on the straight grain but the fabric was unexpectedly printed on the diagonal (I ordered it online and did not realise) however it worked out for the best in the end - a much more interesting shirt.

Btw ... great to see you have started quilting - your first quilt looks very precise, I'm sure with your skills you are going to make some beautiful quilts.

Hi!, This shirt is Fab-U-Lous!! I love the way you've matched the yoke and pockets. Great tower plackets too! The whole lay out of the shirt is very pleasing to the eye. Your Mum's partner will really love it:-)) Thanks! Pam

Thanks Pam ... I was a bit worried when the fabric arrived with the print on the diagonal but am really pleased with the final result ... makes it more interesting than the standard plaid flannel shirt.

Gosh ... the matching of the yoke and pocket is spot on. Some precision sewing going on in your house! LOL!!

Thanks Barbara ... so spot on I guess you missed that this shirt has two pockets ... the flanelette is actually alot easier to match up precisely as it has some give. Thanks for commenting.
