I knew he would love this fabric, especially during hot summer days. Mens viscose shirt was not a bad idea after all. He is asking for more now, lol)
I used Burdastyle pattern for this shirt, and let me say, I am not a fan of it
- First the instructions are so badly written.
- And second – I didn’t like how simple they made the shirt, I mean they omitted so many obvious things which really put the quality into a shirt
- third – sew along doesn’t help, the one they put on the blog this summer. Maybe someone it helped, but for me – it confused me more than ever, lol
If you don’t have the pattern – don’t buy it! If you have it already then try to follow the sew along for Archer shirt by Grainline Studio and add those missing interfacings among other things to your Burda shirt. Although the best thing what I can recommend is getting Archer pattern, because the sew-along has an error, so..Oh my! Am I confusing you even more?) Sorry!
The real best thing is to find a good pattern for men’s shirts and play with it as long as possible changing things around with pockets.. etc Do you have one? I mean, the perfect mens shirt pattern, please tell me, if you do, because I’ll get it asap!
And the fabric – as I said in Vienna blouse post, I’m not happy, it is looking super good, but it stretches a lot while you are wearing it..not good, not good!
