This is the fifth men's shirt I've made from my tried-and-true BurdaStyle pattern from Sewing Vintage Modern. Numbers 1 - 4 can be seen here, here, here, and here. On this version I left off the collar to make it more of a mandarin-style shirt. I also omitted pockets and made it short sleeved so it can be worn in the (fast-approaching) summer.
I bought this green-gray chambray at a new fabric store called The Cloth Pocket during the Austin Fabric Shop Hop last month. They stock this chambray fabric in an array of colors, and it was such a nice weight and so easy to work with that I may have to go back and get some more.
The best thing about making clothes for my husband is that I get to take the project pictures! I'd much rather be behind the lens. And he's such a natural model anyway!
Maybe I can get him to start modeling my clothes as well... ;)
