This man's shirt was on the bargain rail at a charity shop for 50p. I bought it ostensibly for my husband, but I knew he wouldn't be man enough to wear lilac, so after getting my Brownie points for thinking of him, it came to me!
I used the Colette Sorbetto pattern again (this is my first rendition of it) but using the existing front opening instead of the pleat at the front. This time I added sleeves using this pattern.
I thought the sleeves stuck out a bit though so I put a little pleat and button at the bottom
and now it looks like this
what do you think, do they look better narrower?
I changed the buttons to some lilac ones I've got in my stash and as this doesn't have to go over my head I've put a couple of darts in the back to make it more fitted than the other Sorbetto I made.
There was no one at home to take the photos so I used the self timer, and kept forgetting you have to reset it each time, hence I ended up with loads of action shots like this
