What materials did you use? This was intended to be a muslin made out of cheap quilting cotton, but it turned out so well I think I'll just wear it as a real shirt.

What are you most proud of? 1) The fact that I could even make something this complicated -- this is the very first garment I've sewn. 2) My top & edge stitching

Fantastic! Job very well done :-)) You should be proud of your very first shirt. I'm so glad that you took my class, and hope to see your next one! Thanks!

Great shirt & love the fabric

Excellent! Great and straight topstitching. Maybe for the cuff plackets, you can stich a bit closer to the edge (edge-stitching is used in these areas). Another minor detail is the collar is flashing a bit of the undercollar. This can be addressed by making the undercollar a bit smaller. See the Shirtmaking book of David Coffin, which I used extenstively. The points on the collar are knife sharp! How did you turn these?

Oh, in terms of fitting, it looks like the collar is a bit to large for you. Your figure could use a 'trim fit' pattern. But thats easy now you know how to sew it!
