a casual shirt for the husband
I sewed my hubby a shirt.
I usually sew nothing but my own clothes. I don't feel like sewing, especially when I am asked (oh well... I'm selfish). On the other hand, I have to confess that I enjoy looking at people who look happy with the clothes that I make too.
So, when the energy that is needed for my rate-determining step is lower than usual, I happen to sew for others (for making myself feel good).
He seems loving it, as I see him in it so often. Yay for me!
fabric: wool, pink-purple, twill, soft, slightly raised and thick
pattern: casual shirt no.11 from "the book for shirts for men" (ISBN-13: 978-4579111107)
** this is a Japanese book with full of shirt patterns, and I can strongly recommend it if the wearer is slim-build or not-very-tall. It is fully written in Japanese, though. I believe that the pattern always matters most for the better result.**
Happy sewing ;)
