Hi, Beautiful shirt and lovely Vintage fabric:-)) This is the perfect pairing of pattern and fabric, and something that will be in style forever! I love it and hope that you enjoy wearing your shirt. Thanks for posting your picture. Pam

Thank you, Pam! I've really benefitted from using your techniques. I've made this shirt before, long ago, and found it quite frustrating and fiddly. Following your instructions made the whole thing doable. I used sew-in interfacing because I'm not crazy about having resin in my clothes, and I made french seams because this fabric was a bit to stiff to get down into the sleeves for felling, but other than that it is a shirt made with your methods.

Lovely shirt and color too!!Which pattern did you use? By the way does this class require us to have a shirt pattern of our own ? I dont see anything mentioned anywhere about the pattern used ..

Thank you! I used a vintage McCall's pattern that I've had for at least 10 years, and I just substituted Pam's techniques. The class has recommendations for patterns, but the methods shown can be applied to any shirt pattern you like.

This is inspiring. I think I will sign up for the class after all. The shirt turned out very well, and you did an excellent job on it. Also, you cannot go wrong with Laura Ashley fabrics; they are perfection.

I'm so glad you like it. And yes, vintage Laura Ashley is beautiful and wears like iron. I had a shirt made with Ashley fabric in the 'nineties and I wore it regularly for 15 years before it finally gave out. You'll like the class. It takes an intimidating process and makes it simple and doable. Good luck!
