Vroom! Bird shirt done!
We have had some wet summer so far so maybe this bright shirt will perk things up. If nothing else, they will see him coming on the bike path.
I used my old tried and true pattern - McCall's 8409. It makes a roomy short sleeved casual shirt and he likes it.
This time, I modified the front bands. The pattern calls for the buttonhole (left) side to be a true band and the other side (the right or button side) was just folded over. I decided to make both sides true bands and I like the difference. It's sturdier and looks more professional.
As usual, I put the sleeve on first, before I did the underarm seam.
This allows the flat fell finish to be even easier around the shoulder.
Then I finished it up in a trice! What next, I wonder?
