Liam's Jungle Jerry Shirt

DSCF1517

I have made this Ottobre 1/2008 "Jerry Shirt" a couple of times before, and whilst I like it, I don't love it, like I love the "Apple Shirt" from 3/2010. The Apple shirt has a nice shape, both to the sides of the shirt, and the bottom edge. I also like the yoke on the apple shirt.

I feel that the collar on the Jerry shirt is too big and a bit shape-less, and the cuffs are too wide - not that that isn't easily fixed. The pocket is also a plain, rectangular shape and the shirt is a bit on the short side too. So I'm thinking, after making three of these, that it might be time to move on to something else.

Mum bought this jungle fabric for me, as well as some more in a different colour-way. I may end up making another Apple shirt from it, or I might have a bit more of a look around and see if Ottobre has a similar long-sleeved pattern.

  1. It is very cute, though, even if you don't totally love it.
