Roger's turn !

  I took a break from boring business paperwork to sew this shirt for my wonderful husband Roger. He's been seeing shirt after shirt being sent to my clients,  so I thought he more than deserves a new shirt too !

The fabric is wonderfully unusual...a medium weight cotton shirting with highly textured stripes that vary in thickness. This shirt was a huge challenge to photograph, and the photo does not do justice to the beautiful fabric.

SEWING NOTES:   Collar, Cuffs, and Bias Plackets interfaced with PRO-WEFT Fusible Interfacing from ~Fashion Sewing Supply~, Buttons from ~Fashion Sewing Supply~, Fabric from my personal stock of shirting fabrics collected over the years ;)

Beautiful! I just sewed a dress shirt for my husband and am ashamed to say that it was a near disaster! But, I am proud that I did successfully sew the sleeve plackets (gauntlets?) and have your blog to thank, it was an older post of yours that provided the information to attach them properly, and in a way that made sense to me!

Terrific shirt! As always. Wow, you really matched the stripe on the pocket perfectly. I like the detail of the bias cuff placket and front placket.

The bias bands really are a nice touch. He's fortunate to have such great talent in-house.
