The shirt/jacket has actually been done for about a month, and my husband had his first opportunity to wear it this week while going on the ATV to bring our girls in for milking. He really likes it, and that always makes me happy.
The pictures are not that good because I used my phone camera, but you can get the idea.
I made a size XL, and could have went down a size. The shirt is roomy on my husband, but again, he likes that since he will be wearing it more for a jacket. If I was to make a shirt out of normal fabric, I would go down a size.
It is nice to refashion something old into something new. All these years of saving up jeans has finally paid off :)
Take care and God bless.
