Recently, once I had completed the Aria shirt by Love Notions for myself, I persuaded my husband to try it on. With a few changes I believed that it would be appropriate as a casual shirt for my man!
I printed and cut the size 3X, added 3 inches to the length and made copious notes so that I would remember to put the buttonholes on the LEFT FRONT.
I used some Navy polyester/cotton (originally a superking flat sheet) that I had set aside for toile-making. As I had already made my first version, it was a quick and easy sew.
Within 3 hours I had a completed shirt for my husband to try. It fit very well with the exception that he felt the sleeves were rather short. Personally I thought the collar was a little ‘mean’. I have adjusted the pattern so that next time I make this it should be absolutely purrfect!
