Q&A with New2renew

David Page Coffin asked:
Totally wearable, totally cool fabric choicesand the inverted cuffs are a feature, not a bug, right?:) You'll love having it around to compare against your future creations!
New2renew answered:
Thank you! I did fix the cuffs. I'll be checking in with you again when I get back to shirts in a few months. Thanks for your great support and information.
