Not really a saga per se but it sure felt like one.
I started out doing a muslin just to make sure there was enough ease for FH to wear a smaller size. When I looked at the initial measurements on the pattern envelope I was suspicious. Turns out I was right. He could get by with a smaller size.
waistcoat, which was a good idea. I needed to make the largest size of the waistcoat to go over the billowing shirt.
I think the shirt looks really good in linen.
