I made this shirt as a last minute gift for my husband several hours before our Christmas’ Eve dinner. So glad to have my trustable sewing machine and fabric stash!

The pattern is Finlayson sweater by Thread Theory. I made variation 1 in size M. I really love how the squared neckline and the shawl collar have added such interesting details to an otherwise simple item. The fabric is double knit jersey in navy.

My husband doesn’t like cuffs, so I eliminated both cuffs and hem band and lengthened the sleeves and body a bit. He really likes the simple zigzagged finishing on the long sleeved T-shirt that I made for him 8 years ago (he is still wearing it nowadays!), so I did a similar thing for this shirt. Since I have a serger now, I don’t have to use zigzag stitch anymore.

I took these pictures this morning around the station while my husband was on the way to the office. Unfortunately Christmas is not a national holiday in Japan, so he’s spending the whole day in the office as usual.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

    Aren’t sergers great?
    You’ll never know how helpful they are until you have one.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
