Sep 07, 2010A fantastic little primer on (mostly) mens shirts. The author guides you through getting started, fitting a pattern, construction and sewing in an orderly and logical way. As I read through, all the questions that arose in my mind were answered within the next few pages so my reaction throughout the book went something like: "Yeah but then how...." (flip, flip) "Oh! Got it." I like that in a sewing book.
Sep 18, 2012Simple, straightforward and easy to follow instructions to set my sewing apart from just "average". Best of all, the book is written with men's shirts in mind; so often an afterthought in most publications. Also, the author's confession that making one's own shirts is not an exercise in efficiency nor frugality - rather it's the ability to make something FIT hit home. I suspect he also brews his own beer.
Aug 14, 2012Lots of techniques and instructions to take basic shirt making to a much higher level. Coffin goes far beyound the pattern companies to show the user how to adapt to differences in body and posture to create 'expensive' shirts most anyone would be proud to wear.
Jan 23, 2014Excellent book! I highly recommend this book to all Shirtmaking Lovers! The author gives an incredible useful technique of making fine shirts for men and woman.
