Ottobre 1-2010-21 - Orange Plaid Shirt

Another winner from Ottobre! Not much to say about it - I'll mostly let the pictures do the talking.

I like the unique pockets, but I was using a plaid fabric and thought it might be a bit much so I left them off. My original plan was to substitute a single traditional pocket, but I completely forgot about it until I saw these pictures.

I messed up something with the front bands when I was tracing or cutting out the pattern. I'm still not sure what I did or didn't do. The markings and instructions were confusing to me. I ended up sewing on bands to make it work.

The little sleeve tabs are a nice detail.

On this inset you can see that the "solid" orange is actually a yellow/orange crossweave. There was just a small piece in my stash from many years ago and was a great match for the plaid.

And, of course, the "silly shot" (featuring tattoos)...
