He fancied a nice white shirt.
We both lurved the Aime Comme Marie 'Mister' shirt
Slight problem.... its completely printed in French!
But with the help of Bing Translator I got the gist of it.
And I have made a few dozen shirts in my time.
Hugo's measurements put him a medium but I could have sized back to a small possibly in this cloth.
I used a super stretchy but deliciously crisp poplin.
I have cut another in a cotton broadcloth, I will let you know how it goes.
The shirt is a fitted style with a separate collar/collar stand.
And, Oh that collar!
The sleeve placket, I adore a two piece sleeve placket.
MOP buttons, but of course!

The Nitty-Gritty Kitty.
Stunning sew, very enjoyable.
The instructions are all in French but there are good step by step diagrams.
The seam allowance is NOT added, I used 1 cm and 3 cm for the hem, as advised-I think ;)
Definitely not a sew for a beginner but fine for a intermediate.
Take your time pressing whilst constructing.
I did interface the sleeve placket pieces, I am not sure if that was in the instructions, I just like to.
It looks AMAZING on Hugo, definitely bespoke looking.
I shall have to pin him down for some picces.
