I made Jed another Liberty shirt.
But I am not so sure about this pattern any more...
I have made Jed three of these and originally was very happy with the fit.
The oversize boxy fit gave him tummy room without being huge in the shoulders.
The style worked well in lawn as it has good ease.
But the last one I made is just not right.
The collar is lovely, the sleeves are good but the tummy is just not covering anymore.
I think my pattern shrunk ;)
The shirt has rounded sides and I have noticed his tummy shows when he puts his arms up.
So I think it may be time to look for a new pattern!
I picked up Kwiksew 3883 during the last Spotlight sale, so I will try that in a inexpensive gingham.
If that doesn't suit I may try the Vado custom fit.
I was so disappointed with this shirt. Jed doesn't have many things sewn for him and I want him to feel smart, confident and comfortable when we go out.
There is no fault with the pattern, it just doesn't suit us anymore.
I should try it on again now that I have lost 10 kilos (CSIRO program).
It's a nice shirt, the fabric is comfy made by a professional, sexy seamstress (ba ha ha NMK)
