I am not making any sort of statement on man boobs. It is just the only form that I have to display the McCall's 2447 men's shirt.
First thing first. The placket for the sleeves worked out perfectly. I'm quite pleased.
The McCall's pattern instructions were perfect, I can't take credit for these without mentioning that little piece of information.
I did hand stitch before machine stitching. An extra step that was not called for in the pattern instructions. I did it because I wanted them to turn out as well as they could.
I didn't mind the extra time I took during this phase.
I quickly forgot about the 3/8" seam allowance when cuffs turned out beautifully.
Could I possibly be turning into a fan of graded seam allowances?
Almost done, the buttons are picked and the buttonholes are sewn. Just a bit more hand sewing needed to add the buttons. I'm not brave enough to try to sew them using the sewing machine. Call me old fashion.
