My first men’s shirt and my second shirt at all. I used Negroni shirt pattern by Colette. I’ll tell you later about it with some short vlogs and conclusion ūüėČ I also want to say super big thanks to¬†MalePatternBoldness, the sewalong is super awesome! And “Do your best now and then move on” became my mantra now))

This shirt is super different from the¬†Archer¬†I’ve made for myself. The construction is so different, I mean I’ve never put my attention on those details of the shirts, lol!

And for this happy and proud face I’ll be sewing many more shirts between other stuff ;)))

My second shirt, but not as easy as I was expecting. “Shirts have different construction” – I said to my self feeling a little bit out of place, lol! Yeah I’ve never paid that much attention to shirts before, but now I kind of love it)) It is exciting, to be getting deeper in such kind of thing. I want to sew more shirts, and learn more stuff.

With all these said, I confess that I made this shirt without total understanding how I’ve made it, I was and still I am pretty lost. I think I’m not fan of facing stuff in the shirts, so I will keep in mind for the next time.

Ahh, and the fabric was a nightmare – I don’t mind it to crease that much, but the plaid! It is too small and it has too many colours, lol It made spend so so much time matching… And I need to much) You know, even before I started sewing I had that thing that if I see something anythere that the lines do not much it used to irritate me like crazy) well, it still does, but I have a solution for it in sewing at least ūüėČ
