This is your basic men's shirt with yoke, collar stand, collar, and sleeve plackets. I used the size I had sewn for him from BurdaStyle before and, what do you know? It fits straight out of the box. Bah.
I think I might make the pocket just a little wider. And the under part of the sleeve placket is a narrow strip sewn to the edge. In the future, I may copy the standard placket template out of David Coffin's shirtmaking book. Other than that, I don't feel the need to search around for another shirt pattern. Excellent.
I'm pleased because it fits and I made some successful plackets. He's pleased because he discovered a hole in his favorite red plaid flannel shirt.
