Finally! By the skin of my teeth I’ve managed my first ever man’s shirt in time for the May challenge.
Of course that’s no thanks to Burdastyle who have gotten writing crap unhelpful instructions down to a fine art. I mean seriously – how much would it really cost them to use a few bullet points?
After many howls of frustration I found the lovely Male Devon Sewing tutorial which was fantastic for soothing my nerves and calming me down. Until the last stitch.
Which is when I noticed my almighty mistake. Honestly I’m a tool. I put the sleeves on back to front. I could have cried.
Instead my lovely husband talked me off the ledge and declared it his favourite shirt ever and said he’d just wear it with his cuffs rolled up.
