finished the 'starter' shirt

With the husband back home, I was able to finish up his shirt. I made button holes, sewed buttons and hemmed. All in all I learned a lot from this first shirt... such as how many things I'll do differently on the next one (and how very cool an automatic buttonhole foot is!). Which is the point of doing what is referred to as a 'muslin'.

I did not snap a photo of the finished product. The shirt is not my best work and he'll never wear it outside of the house. However, I have fabric ready for the next one. Hopefully I'll like it well enough to show it off.

In the meantime, I have other projects. I'll be working on the oldest child's dress and I'm participating in MPB Jeans Sew-Along. Stay tuned!
