I finally got the muslin to fit A, though we have decided to add a little more to the bicep area on the next shirt. I am trying a new style of cuff on the 3/4-length sleeves:
While this style looks fine, I am not sure how well it will wear because the inner point, though topstitched, is very fragile and will probably rip out in the future. I have interfacing on the lining and some in the stitching area on the back side of the outer fabric, but I have a feeling that a regular cuff with a placket would be much sturdier. Today I plan to put on the collar and hem the body, then all that will be left to do is buttons/buttonholes.
It is cool this morning since the fog is in, so I think it will be my chance to make some chocolate chip cookies for the spouse.
UPDATE: Well, A has been wearing this shirt for over 5 years and the cuffs have held up fine, so I worried about it for nothing.
