I branched out this Christmas… I made MEN’S clothing. I made two plaid flannel shirts for my fiance. I couldn’t finish both in time for Christmas, so I gave him one then and finished the other one after. The first was a surprise, but I let him try on the second while I was working on it (definitely a good idea). The first didn’t fit properly 😦 I somehow left out the front seam allowances, and the collar was too high. The second fit perfectly.

|Shirt #1, into the box!|
|Opening… I was so excited at this point|
|Awesome gift! Too bad it doesn’t fit right… he’ll wear it
with a shirt underneath, not buttoned all the way
|Shirt #2–perfect for reading!|
|Back of shirt #2|
|Buttons and pocket|

|Also perfect for sake!|
|Ready to go out to sushi in the new shirt 🙂|
I’ll lower the collar on shirt #1 to make it wearable. I’m so sad it doesn’t fit, but I guess I learned my lesson–it’s better to have someone try on the gift than make it a surprise that doesn’t fit!
