my First men's shirt

I made the shirt from 100% cotton. Fabric I had in my stash. I think next time I would choose a fabric which didn't crease so much! I chose one of the patterns recommended by Peter New Look 6197 This pattern had a separate facing. I would have preferred to have had the same as in the class (an attached facing) so I could follow along step by step, in the end my facing didn't reach the yoke so I had to make a thread chain to attach it. The other thing I struggled with was the button holes, iv'e not done to many in the past. It would have been nice if at least a couple had been shown in class just to show how to place them correctly. I looked at another craftsy class just to confirm I was getting it right. I did learn things from Peter and did enjoy it. My husband is very pleased with the result. Especially my pocket matching! I did found the music irritating when Peter was speaking, but it was very nice music. Peter is a very good tutor and you feel he is talking just to you. Thank you
