His birthday present

Although I sew a lot more these days, the person I sew the least for is my husband. Why is it so hard to sew for a guy? I went looking for tutorials, patterns...and couldn't find any that was appropriate for a birthday present. In the end I decided to make him a shirt, and to draw up the pattern myself.

I traced the pattern pieces from one of his existing smart casual shirt. It's a good thing I've been into japanese garment sewing lately, because it was easier to figure out garment construction once you've sewn a few pieces.

I decided to add some tucks ( is that what you call it) to give it a bit of interest without interrupting the clean lines of a man's garment. I didn't have any appropriate buttons so I picked these out of one of his old shirts that was about to go to charity...

A pocket for good measure

Packed full of love and affection :)

I love you.. my husband, my best friend, my soulmate..

Happy 30th birthday!
