Filles a Maman Marc Pattern
I was given the opportunity to test the Marc Shirt by Filles a Maman. From now until Monday night (June 30th) the pattern is only $7. After that, it will go up to the full price of $9. It is the "brother" shirt to the Mimi pattern by her, which I also got to test.
It has its similarities to the Mimi (side collar, stitching the facing down, curved hem), but it also adds it's own little personality (straight collar, two buttons with a placket). I really like it and couldn't be happier with it. The collar facing was a little finicky to get right (when attaching a woven to a knit, there's bound to be a little bit of finagling to get it to attach correctly without stretching it), but it all worked out perfectly in the end (even though I poked myself a few times from using so many pins!). It's a unique twist on a collared shirt and Casey really liked it and wore it all day (and a few times since then). Of course, I think it helped that green is his favorite color!
