Sewing for Boys: Easy Linen Shirt

Sewing for Boys, sew-along this month, was the Easy Linen Shirt.  When I hear the word shirt, I don't automatically think "easy".  Unless it's a raw edge raglan, like a couple months ago.

But I was pleasantly surprised.  It was like the name stated... EASY.  Minus the need for eating/sleeping, or mothering of children, I think this could be completed in an hour... perhaps minus the cutting too?  I don't know, there are only 3 pieces, so even the cutting went quickly.

I embellished the sleeve with an "S".  For Silas of course.  He was very excited to be wearing an "S".

I shortened the sleeves also, since it's already quite warm here.  So, I LOVED the pattern.  LOVED how the shirt turned out.  LOVED how easy it really was!
