Wow!  I'm a big fan of your work and these are beautiful!  You're a very talented seamstress and it shows by your work and all the different types of fabrics you can work with  Grin Grin  One question...do you ever sleep? lol

I love your husband's shirt! Besides little things like mending I've never sewn for guys--how does it compare to sewing for women? I assume some parts are easier, like you don't have to worry about bust and waist shaping as much, but is there anything tricky that comes up that you don't have to deal with when sewing for women?

The boyfriend is tall and lanky, so a lot of his clothes look too big because if he goes down a size the sleeves are too short. I've been considering making him clothes. I'll have to start with something easy like PJ pants or a long sleeve T-shirt, but what he really needs are nice shirts for work.

Thanks for the compliments!

Regarding sewing for men, oh yes it is easier and tougher at the same time, because, we need bother too much about fitting for obvious reasons of no bustline -waistline variations! But there are tiny details involved with seams, collars and plackets that we have to deal with in case of men's clothing, with practice they are a breeze for sure! best wishes to you and wish you make an elaborate wardrobe for your man!
