A Wagonmaster's Shirt

Yesterday I finished this shirt, using Period Impressions 754, Bib Front Shirt. It is for a client who builds period wagons.
The pattern went together easily, despite the instructions being very vague. However, it is all rectangles, and can be assembled almost entirely by looking at the pattern illustration.
I love sewing men's clothing because it is so simple. There are no frills, and everything is so straightforward. Of course, this can get very tedious, but sometimes I welcome the break from female clothing. I have a few more men's shirts on the horizon, and then I get to try my hand at designing a Robin Hood inspired garment for a friend!
