I made a shirt for my husband for a certain occasion.
The fabric I used was very fine purple-pink shirting cotton (I've been thinking that the color suits him very much).
Because he always seemed being reluctant to try unfinished garments, I didn't ask him to put it on before it was done. Very fortunately in the end, though it is a bit tight around the neck, the shirt fits him (almost) perfectly! And I'm sure the color helps him to look better, too.
It's always good to see a person in fitted garments!
I also sewed this sparkling jacket for myself for the same reason.
It has got a pretty shawl collar and A-line shape. It doesn't have any buttons but I use a pin as the closure. I made the pin, too, decorating with some beads. I was going to wear it on a sleeveless mini-dress, made of pale pink silky satin, which was also made by me last year.
Said that, I have to tell you that the rest of my family (I mean our daughter) got influenza virus 5 days ago. She has been in the bed for some days, and she and her mother definitely would miss the party tomorrow. Well, I think it's very typical. I might have been too prepared! A memorable story never miss such ending anyway.
Hope my husband will successfully send our best wishes to the newly weds. Hope he'll have a good time for himself too!
I hope you are doing well!
Keep yourself warm, to you in the North hemisphere!
Stay comfortable and cool, to you in the South half of our planet!
