M6044 & S2346

For this project M6044 my son chose the fabric and style.  He wanted something very different that no one else has. He wanted a black shirt with red/black check contrast.  This contrast was placed in the cuff and collar.  The contrast in the cuff will only show if he turned the cuff up.

Also along with the shirt we made the accompanying vest from Simplicity 2346 .

Pattern Description: Men's vest.

Pattern Sizing: Size AA 34-42. I altered the pattern down to a 32.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes until I got to bagging the vest. The instructions seemed a bit mirky.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No dislikes. It turned out great.
Fabric Used: Cotton Calico

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I altered the pattern to a size 32 because he is very slim and he likes a more tapered look.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Conclusion: Very simple with plenty of variations.
