Finally Finshed! Shirt with Wrap-Over Angled Yoke


Designing and drafting the pattern for this shirt was so much fun, 
and stitching it was even better!

In the post below this one, you will see the pattern and the "muslin" (test garment) for this style.  I only needed to make some very small changes to arrive at the finished shirt, involving the shape of the sleeve cap. It just needed to be a little flatter and a bit longer.

 Balancing details is important when designing menswear that differs from the norm. I did not want this shirt to veer into "western" territory, and of course I did not want it to look like a "blouse".  So I added a traditionally shaped pocket, and carried the piped accents of the yoke to the sleeve and pocket. The addition of a white band collar cut straight at center front (rather than rounded) and traditional white shirt buttons "marching" down the the front placket finish the look.

It is fabulous! I like such a collar on a man - it seems especially nice for warmer weather. Though it is a man's shirt and indeed reads MAN, I would love one for me too. Do you sell this pattern?

I love all the well-thought-out details! What is striking me the most in the photo beyond all the richness of precision, & it maybe just a quirky thing of mine, but the depth of the button stand with this collar height is very satisfying. I'd love to see the shirt style modeled by a live human although I know that can be problematic.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments, MB...yes I planned the width of the collar to measure the same as the width of the button stand between the top-stitching! I am thrilled that you noticed that! In a shirt design like this, the proportion of the design details really matters.

I will see if I can sweet-talk Roger into slipping the shirt on for a quick pic before it gets sent to my client...don't hold your breath, lol
