Happy Birthday Dad!

It was Dad's 60th yesterday and I wanted to make something special. Plus he's really hard to buy things for! I thought it might be nice to treat him to a handmade shirt, and the only specification was that he wouldn't have to iron it.

I found this fabric round the corner, it's a school gingham so it's pretty durable and doesn't crease easily.  Thankfully he likes it, he didn't want anything too dark and I wasn't sure about patterned, so I settled on this one.

I'm really loving the black on the inside of the collar, button band and cuffs.   It fits great, and I've told him there will be a photo shoot, however I really wanted to get these pics up straight away!  Keep an eye out for more to come.
