I made this shirt months ago but it took me until now to get pictures with my reluctant model.
It’s not a color I would have expected him to pick but its not my place to judge. He had originally wanted snaps on this but I felt like the shirt looked too formal for that and he wanted it to wear with his suit so I convinced him to change to grey buttons instead.
The fabric was really light weight broadcloth so the cuffs turned out well.
Next up we have the vest that I made him for Christmas. I was a little disappointed in the fit, despite measuring his chest ahead of time the size I made for him was just a tad too small. He could button it but I thought it was too tight to be comfortable for any extended period. I did some triage since I wasn’t in the mood to unpick the whole thing apart and just moved the buttons over an inch. Now the buttons aren’t centered as they should be but he assures me no one will notice.
I am very happy with how the notched collar turned out. I already have the wool cut out for a waistcoat for myself!
