The Classic Tailored Shirt »
InstructionsI improved the fit of the self drafted collar band on this size 2 boys shirt. Top stitched the shorts and hat with orange thread. Used a new technique of stiching ontop of waist elastic which made the waist bigger than in previous versions of these shorts that I have made - however he will grow into them.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Outdoorsy, Classic, Cute
What was your inspiration?
I was making the orange check into father and son shirts for my brother and nephew and my grey shirt material arrived from UK and looked so cool with the orange I thought I would make my nephew the complete set.
What are you most proud of?
getting the collar right and orange topstitching - first time I have tried contrasting stitching and I am pleased with how straight and neat it is.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
be careful of streaching elastic - also mothers seem to want clothes in sizes that are too big so they will last more than one season.
