The Ups and Downs of Making Things

Square armhole shirt finished – well, probably.

I went off the neckline, then decided I liked it, but would move the sides in a tad on the next one.

I found the neckline also worked open, but really need a deeper facing for that look.

I thought the sleeve gathers were wrong, then thought they were right.

I tried the sleeves long, then chopped them.

Is it too long? To shorten or not.

I like the deeper, different armhole position, but want to play more with the shaping possibilities if I make another.

What is it that makes the same garment look impossible one day, and ok the next?

    This is a handsome shirt. I like the neckline and the sleeves. I have no insights as to why one loves something one day and hates it the next 🙂
