    Completed: Mens formal button up shirt

    This shirt took me a couple days long then I expected, but it was worth the time! I made it to fit myself, and it fits perfectly. I had run out of muslin, and so was not able to make a mock up.

    Pajama Bottoms

    I used some red and black flannel fabric to make my dad a pair of pajama shorts. Unfortunately, I did not have enough fabric for full length pants.

They turned out pretty well! admin
