Shirt #1 - Zebra


Long-sleeve cotton flannel shirt, in a Zebra Stripe print. Now in the collection of Erik Zantopp.

Completed 2018-10-27. This is the first dress-style shirt that I made. I started it about a week and a half prior and was quite surprised by how quickly it came together. I chose the zebra-stripe pattern mostly for silliness, but it was a good choice for the first shirt, since the camouflage pattern was inherently forgiving!

I lengthened the pattern considerably to accomodate my longer arms, and sewed the fabric unwashed. The initial fit was good. After wash, it shrank a bit too small for me but was a perfect fit for Erik.
