Well, this has taken three weeks instead of one due to the number of adjustments needed at the muslin stage. It was worth the extra effort. This light cotton shirt fits really well. It is not perfect but it is definitely a wearable shirt that will get worn a lot over the spring/summer.

Tweeks for the next shirt:

The collar is a bit too high so I shall take 1.5 cm off the top of the centre front. Also the cuff plackets are too long. I usually wear shirts with the sleeves rolled to ¾ length so it’s not too big a deal, though I will still alter the pattern.
