The Classic Tailored Shirt »
InstructionsI used Kwik Sew Pattern 3422 which includes 1/4" seams. I had to use a flat fell foot and rolled hem foot.
I was told to try embroidrey thread I use a matching color with a shine. It really made the topstitching look beautiful.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Check the pattern as Pam recommends and add the 3/8" to the seams included are 1/4". It's much easier to use Pams Finger Felling Technique than a felling foot.
Love the "Yoke Trick"
Try using Embroidrey Thread you may need to use a metallic needle.
