This is one of the nicest and quickest shirts I’ve made. I moved my topstitches closer to the edges and it gives it an elegant finish. I also added the button downs for the collar, which I usually leave out for a more casual look. I wanted this shirt to be dressed up or down, but always eye-catching.
The fit around the collar is a little odd, but it’s California so I wear it unbuttoned, plus it’s too small to button around my chubby neck. Hopefully once I start drafting my own shirt pattern, I’ll be able to get a collar that fits better, then maybe wear a tie once in a while.
