I was looking for patterns for someone and started to rummage among the shirt patterns and I’d forgotten that I have so many in my size.

I prefer vintage patterns because they are designed to fit better.
I use my favourite constantly instead of any of these wonderful patterns.

Simplicity 8711 is an all-time favourite and have been using it for years, adding yokes, varying the front placket (placket or no placket), so now it has a collection of variations.

I also have a few ancient patterns, not in my size, that I like to keep because they are great pieces and they need to be protected. They are very hard to find now.

There is a storm brewing and MORE rain.
Time to sew.
