A new shirt for Tom

I had planned to make a new coat to wear on our trip down to San Francisco this weekend. And everything was going swimmingly until I tried to attach the collar facing to the back lining. The lining was WAY too small to fit the collar. A look at the back lining pattern piece (yes, I should have checked it before I cut) compared to the collar piece told me the piece had been drafted incorrectly. In fact, even without the pleat, it was too small.

So I abandoned the coat for the trip (who need's sewing stress before a trip?) and moved on to something I knew would work.

Thanks to my shirt cutting spree earlier this year, and getting up so early, Friday morning Tom got a new shirt to wear on the trip.
