Menswear Shirt With Shaped Yoke


I had a few moments to snap a pic of this shirt 
just before Fedex was due to pick it up and send it to my client.

It is made from a reversible cotton/rayon blend shirting featuring tiny herringbone checks, that has a soft limp drape...and should be very comfortable to wear during my client's temperate winter climate.  As you can see, I used the predominantly green side for most of the shirt pieces, and chose to cut the shaped yoke, button and front plackets and pocket accents from the reverse side.

SEWING NOTES--  Pattern is my own hand-draft. Fabric is from my wholesale supplier. Interfacing used is ProWoven Light-Crisp Fusible from www.FashionSewingSupply.com

I'd like something like that for me! Is it ok to call a man's shirt "beautiful"?

Perfection. That is all I can say.
I have a question. I am re-drafting the back of a shirt to include a yoke. How far forward should the yoke seam at the shoulder be? I was going to bring the shoulder seam forward by 1"

Hi Kathy, the usual amount is 3/4" to 1". However you can drop it, shape it, or angle it to any depth.
