Steve! Happy BirthdayChristmasValentines!

I finally finished Steve's shirt!! The sleeves are a bit too long, but the fit through the body turned out great.

Steve's new shirt.

Don't look too close at my buttonholes. They function. That's the important thing.

Steve's new shirt, detail.

And the back. (How did I sew those pleats in the WRONG direction?? How? Oh, well, whatever.)

Steve's new shirt, back.

It's a shirt. It doesn't have holes in it. He'll wear it. There are things I would do differently if I do it again, but that's always the case. I'm really happy with how this turned out. Steve jokes that at the rate I sew for him, he can expect another handmade item from me in about four or five years?
