It has a nice slim fit for under dress jackets and such.

This was my first attempt at a "proper" shirt, with a yoke and bound cuff plackets... with cuffs at all! I had the seam ripper out a lot. But I was very happy with the results. Our son wore this at our wedding last summer. Size 92, length 98 for our 96-ish cm not-quite four year old. Fit was great. Not too big or too slim, sleeves just the right length. I really like the way the hemline is curved like a "grown up" shirt - we are not a tucking-in family, so everyone saw my hem! The only thing (that I can tell) that separates this pattern from an adult man's button down shirt is that the collar is one piece, rather than two pieces.

I used an Amy Butler solid, which isn't at all a shirting fabric, but worked out fine.

The front:

I did this shirt again in a shirting flannel, this time size 116.



(It's the same as design #11, but with long sleeves)
