Armani cotton shirting "Roamin Waters"
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a casual shirt for my boss to wear on his boat. I make alot of stuff for his wife and I wanted to make him something special for xmas too.
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.
