Notes Unfortunately the Lekala men's patterns only have a few measurements on them, which gave a few fitting problems on this, particularly the sleeve length (which was very long). No collar sizing either. Other than that, this fitted very well in the body.

The instructions for constructing the sleeve vents were rather confusing, in the end I had to ignore the instructions and the binding on the pattern and just make my own. The fit of the sleeves was very loose, unfortunately this meant that Joseph was not happy to wear this shirt.

The front placket was very short, which looked a bit odd, I would lengthen this if I ever make the shirt again.
