For our penultimate project of the first year, we had to create a period shirt based on a pattern consisting entirely of varying sizes of squares and rectangles.

The construction of this shirt required a lot of the skills we had learned throughout the year, be that on the kimono project or during our basic skills. I really enjoyed working on this period shirt project, and found I could construct the garment with fairly little guidance meaning I could work mostly independently. I think that the final garment is well finished and looks good.
