Shirt for My Little Fellow
I don't have too much to say about this pattern, Burda 9593, but all of it is good. A very nice basic shirt pattern for boys in sizes 6 through 12, with pocket and yoke options. I carried this pattern home from work at the House of Fabrics because it has a collar with a stand and a double yoke. It has recently been discontinued.
The fabric is a lovely bottom-weight twill cotton from Anne Klein. It's somewhat too heavy for a shirt, but I wanted to experiment to see if it would hold up better to the abuse it will receive. Interfacing is fusible Pro-Tailor Deluxe from Sew Exciting.
The whole thing went together very easily and well. I much prefer constructing the collar with a stand over a convertible collar, even though the latter is considered the simpler option.
