|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? All you need is a good tailored shirt pattern, basic sewing machine, thread, buttons and seam ripper, scissors, iron and sleeve board.
What are you most proud of? That I used her technique in doing all my flat felled seams. I purchased the special felling foot for my BabyLock Decorators choice and was not that impressed so off it came and on I went with Pam's technique. Perfect results with great control. Did you see that collar?
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Open your mind up to possibilities. It;s not just a class on how to make a classic shirt. This class has lots of options where you can take your creative process. How about a jacket. Yes jacket she has some wonderful examples she shows in the classroom. How about using a silk dupioni? Denim? After this class my next project is a unlined denim classic jacket pattern M5860 in a silk dupioni and a pair of AW#4200 classic boot cut jeans. Between this class on The Classic Tailored Shirt and the Unlined Jacket Class on Pattern review the jacket is going to be a breeze with Pam and Angela's class.
