Finished Shirt Gallery

Voila! Here it is, the finished product. It’s too tight in the underarm area for me to wear comfortably, but it could definitely be used in a shirt-like fashion by someone with smaller arms and shoulders.

The seams are a little rough, but I think it’s pretty good for my first attempt. The hardest parts were definitely the underarm bands and the neck band. I did learn a lot from the process of trying to interpret certain unclear (to me) parts of the directions that came with the pattern, and I feel like that experience will help my next shirt to be much more polished and wearable.

The gathering seams were also a little hard to figure out, and you may be able to tell from the images that they are not distributed around the neckline as evenly as they should be. I think that should be easy to correct in my next attempt, though.
