Get Creative 2002: long sleeve version
Another shirt version - these are so quick to sew up!
I made a couple of changes - a front placket instead of facings, I made it longer and a sz large this time, which fits a lot better through the shoulders/chest and lengthened the arms by 4".
The material is a cotton poplin off the clearance table at Spotlight (surprise, surprise, lol) and the buttons were off the clearance table - I stocked up on a few basic buttons, it always surprises me how dear they are so I like to grab them when they're out cheap.
I did a better job on my flat felled seams this time because I used a ditch foot for the top stitching so its a lot neater and my cuffs and collar attachment is neater too, but still room for improvement.
My son is still wearing it so I count it as a win, but he wants it as a Pj top whereas I like it as a proper shirt, but I suppose at least its getting worn! I got a nice bright plaid for the next version which hopefully will be a dress shirt for him.
