I finally made Doc’s Valentine gift! He chose the fabric and I couldn’t approve more of his taste:

This is McCalls 6044 again (for the…eleventh?…time) with the shoulder yoke detail and black pearl snaps from Snap Source. That fabric is a Japanese heavy oxford and it’s amazing, both in print and quality.

He texted me from work on the day he wore it that he’s “never gotten so many compliments so fast” on a shirt I’d made. Clearly, I should always let him choose fabric.
