What materials did you use? Armani cotton shirting "Roamin Waters"

What are you most proud of? I altered the class pattern a little to incorporate the bias front band and I also added tucks to the back of the shirt for extra ease.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a clean iron and pressing cloth this time and didn't mark the fabric. Be careful matching stripes - I cut most of this out on a single layer. Matching the stripes on the sleeves to the yoke is most difficult.

Thanks Pam ... he did love it that it was all made just for him but it turned out too big so I am taking in the side seams now by 1 inch. The front band and pocket idea came from Project Runway - but I do think it makes a fairly conservative shirt a bit interesting.
