What materials did you use? cotton/linen blend

What are you most proud of? Pamīs course is really good - I thought it would be much harder to finish the shirt! I used also Janet Prey's instructions on sewing without pins - basically I could fix the collar, the sleeves, and the front folds without using any pin which makes it faster and more fun!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Pam step by step and you'll be fine - she is a great teacher! I loved as well her tower placket pattern. Thanks Pam!

Hi, Love this shirt! Great fabric, color and fit! I'm sure that he would love to have more shirts made by you just for him. Thanks so much, I'm glad you enjoyed the class and the Tower placket :-) Pam

hello Pam, thanks! you're right he's already asked for more!!!:-) but they will be easier to sew - this one was a surprise birthday gift, so I found myself sewing the shirt with another fabric on top to make sure he could not see what I was doing... :-))) again thanks for your course, I'll post the pictures of new shirts when I'll make them!!
