I've set a goal - to make myself FiftyTwo Shirts in 52 weeks!
I have set myself some ground rules:
1. Each shirt must have at least one unique feature in the design that distinguishes it from the other shirts.
2. All construction methods have to be the best possible finish - no overlocker/serger!
3. The shirts can be of any design, short or long sleeved or no sleeves at all and they must have a collar - either attached of detachable.
4. They must be practical and wearable.

Side Seam Shaping
I've noticed on shirts 1, 2, 3 & 4 that there has been a little too much "frump" around the under arm section. And I felt it made my tubby physique look even tubbier - with shirt #5 I reshaped the side seam from a straight line into a curved line....below example 1 was the side seam used for shirts 1-4, while example 2 was the side seam I used for shirt #5.......
And here was the contrast and results of that change....a lot better!
and from these next couple of pictures you can really see that side seam shaping at work as the shirt is used...
