The Classic Tailored Shirt »
InstructionsThis was to practice the techniques taught in the course without using expensive fabric. I choose homespun rather than muslin as if the shirt turned out ok I wanted to be able to use it.
Type of item: Clothing
homespun quilting cotton
What was your inspiration?
I want to make shirts for work and this class will teach me how. This practice shirt was to check the fit and practice the techniques - a good idea since there were alot of errors in this shirt.
What are you most proud of?
Making a practice shirt before using my good fabric. The collar turned out pretty well for my first collar.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make a practice shirt first. I cut my outer yolk and stained the collar with a dirty iron in this practice ... plus the fit was not good for movement, I need a tighter arm hole and would like 3/4 sleeves.
Iron shoe or pressing cloth highly recommended.
