Presenting Version 2.0 of my Pendleton plaid. I like it.
I kept one of the front pockets from Version 1.0 (but not the pocket flap) -- the only thing cut on the diagonal, except for the narrow back yoke.
I traced a smaller collar than I generally wear off an RTW shirt I own, which I think is more flattering. I also placed a front button just a few inches below the top button, so the shirt can be open just a bit up top, which works better with the collar. (Normally my second button is quite a bit lower.)
I like the way the shirt looks with the top button buttoned too.
The collar stand is also narrower than usual.
As I mentioned yesterday, I used the same vintage buttons from the earlier shirt.
A few more gratuitous shirt shots: front left placket and shoulder seam (that's a faux flat-felled seam, btw).
Let us now formally bid goodbye to Version 1.0.
And so, another project comes to an end.
How many more can I squeeze into 2012? Perhaps we'll have some surprises ahead.
