    Well, thank you, Liesl! I really enjoyed sewing the shirt and you can see the results (with a few personal touches) in the images attached.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to reply!

    So, after a good night’s sleep, I decided I will make a muslin. I’m not on FB, but I do follow all your other channels.

    Something else. I pribted out size 2 now and put together the pieces. I’ve shortened the front piece and back piece by 3 1/5″. Now, if I eyeball the back with the yoke and the front, by matching the shoulder line and taking into account the seam allowance on each piece, I get a longer back by almost 2″.

    The question is, do I need to alter the yoke too? There is no shorten/lengthen line there. Or do I need to shothen the back piece again?

    I’m not going to make a muslin for this one, so that’s why I really need to make sure that when I cut the fabric it’ll be OK.

    Thank you again and sorry for the plethora of questions. I really really like the pattern and I bet the result will be great!

    The tube idea is great, thank you. I’m gonna try it for my next project with this pattern.

    Partially it does (the hood is made up of 3 pieces, instead of one). For the neck, I’ve attached a couple of images of what I’m aiming for. Zipped hoodie with high neck hood - front view

    Bought the classic shirt pattern and now it’s time to start 🙂

    But before, I’m just curious about the seam finishing. I have recently become a fan of the faux flat felled seam and also read your tutorial on it. In one of your images, you captured a satin stitch foot on the fabric. Did you actually use that when sewing the seam? It might make sense since it aligns the fabric layers so well and I do have an issue with keeping a straight line… 🙂

    Thank you, Liesl.
    And I just found the summer shirt and it has the exact fit info I needed for my lightweight cotton. Can’t wait to see, too. My first shirt in decades!
