And the men's version...

I finally finished the men's version of the Past Patterns Tucked shirt!! It was quite the project and I am pleased as punch that it is finished!! I did learn a lot more about hand-sewing stitches, and I can't wait to see DH dressed up in it.

I am completely procrastinating...I need to sew more drawers and at least one more chemise, but I'm kind of sick of sewing white things :P, so I'm thinking of taking a break and working on this brightly colored apron first.
I had a blast at the Sew Expo this weekend, and I might post some of my vintage lace finds later in the week. Off to the mending pile!

I know how you feel about sewing white things! It gets so boring, and I'd rather have a fabulous print to work with.

I made that shirt 3 times and still resent it. Not my favorite pattern. Your's looks great!

Very nice!

The shirt looks great! I really need to buy that pattern (and about 12 others) and sew some before "outside" weather comes and makes it doubly hard to stay in and sew.

Wow, that looks wonderful! I love the pleated front!
