    Shirt my Grandson ask me to make

    He is 15 and they all think this is great fabric. I just need to put the buttons on. I hope he wears it. Most teen agers don't like home made stuff. Name:  IMG_2652.jpg

    really great shirt!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Of course he'll wear it - it has hot dogs all over it! Way cool!

    Very nice job. I think he'll wear it. It doesn't look homemade!

    The shirt is great!....and he asked you to do it. That's great too! It looks more "store bought" than some store boughts look these days. Does that make sense?
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I can't see yours, but, if you would double top-stitch all around the collar, sleeves, front and bottom, it looks purchased. P.S. If I could find the fabric, I'd make my 10 yr. old grandson one too. I will look for it.

    He wants ivy league buttons on the collar and I mad a loop on the pocket for a smaller button. I did stitch all around the collar and down the front. It also has slits on each side.

    Great shirt! My guess is he'll wear it open over a tee shirt. My 13 year old grandson, very picky, would probably love it, too!

    If he asked you to make it, he probably will wear it. It is a really cool shirt and it will be different...and you know how they like to be different just like everyone else. LOL

    I showed my 23 year old son, and he likes it ALOT! Unfortunately, I have never made a shirt and mine would never look as nice as yours!

    What great fabric! Good job on the shirt, now you'll have to make a table runner for the summer with the scraps
