What materials did you use? I used 4 different cottons. I used shirting for the body and used kona cotton scraps for collar, plackets and cuffs.

Looks great. I am astonished at how the mixed matched.

How did you do the the hem ?

I love it!! What a great combination of cottons and colors :-) You have a good eye for the use of solids, stripes and prints. You should be very proud of your shirt, and will get many compliments. Thanks, Pam

Thank you. I have so many scraps laying around I decided I try and make a shirt.

Some one asked about the hem...I hate to admit this but... I was so lazy and wanting to wear my shirt right away, I found some double folded bias tape and enclosed the raw edges of the hem. I will find some way around, if I want to wear it bad enough LOL!!!

I agree with Pam, this is a great use of patterns and solids, it caught my eye immediately.
