Q&A with Peanut

Pam Howard asked:
Hi Peanut! Great looking shirt!!! Very professional looking, great collar points and the pocket is ''spot on'' ! You've done a wonderful job :-)) Thanks so much, Pam
Peanut answered:
Thank you! He wanted a 17 1/2 collar, 42 body and 35 inch sleeves. Now I have started something. I have 2 more shirts to cut out. I want to make the collar points just a hair longer. He says they are fine with a tie, but I want to see it first. Plus I want to work on the sleeve plackets.I want to get the inside of them finished off also.

Proud hubby. Really nice work.
Peanut answered:
Proud son. Thanks
Koushite asked:
This shirt looks so professionally done! My husband is so difficult to fit, maybe I should start making his shirts. I would really like to know what pattern you used. Shirts are so expensive these days, how can I lose? Really beautiful work!
Peanut answered:
KWIK sew 3883. I enlarged some of the seams to 5/8 instead of the 1/4 inch. I wanted to flat fell the sleeves (shoulders and under arm) plus the side seams. The rest of the seams can be left at 1/4 inch or what ever the pattern calls for in particular areas.
