What materials did you use? Pink plaid cotton seersucker fabric

What are you most proud of? Aside from the overall fit and finish, I think I'm proud of the plaid matching. It's not perfect, but the patterns line up well in several places. Also, I did a pattern alteration to take some excess fabric out of the sleeve, and that worked well.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Seersucker can be difficult to work with for a men's shirt, since you have to get the folds and seams down precisely, and the fabric doesn't always press well or fold cleanly. So some patience is definitely in order. You can see more about the shirt on my blog: http://lineofselvage.jotabout.com/?p=994
