Pirate style

Ahoy, mateys! I don’t know why I think of pirates when I see this shirt. The pattern is from Machiko Kayaki’s new book, My Favorite Shirt (ISBN 9784579112449). As some of you know, I love Kayaki’s designs. Her patterns are clever yet simple and straightforward, and the sizing seems to be just right.
I made this shirt for my mother, and my plan was to duplicate it in my nani iro knit fabric if I liked the way it turned out. The neck opening is a little low (I’m sure my mother is going to complain about that, but she can just wear an undershirt), so I think I’ll just bring it up a little bit; otherwise, I think this is the one!
Here’s a better look at the neckline:

    I like the neck closure. It is interesting looking!
