The Classic Tailored Shirt »
InstructionsI made 3 muslins over 2 days to finally get a shirt fitting that fitted me well. I also worked out an elbow length sleeve with a simple buttonless cuff.
Type of item: Clothing
100% shirting cotton from UK
What was your inspiration?
Ready to wear shirts have never fitted me well resulting in them being uncomfortable and unflattering for me to wear. Although I am meant to wear shirts at work I often wear tshirts. As I am spending more time outside the office now I need to have some shirts to wear and look more presentable.
I figured if I spent the time to make a really good muslin that was properly fitted to my shape that I could make any number of comfortable and flattering shirts.
What are you most proud of?
My collar is improving and I did a better job of matching stripes this time.
Also for persevering with the muslin - I am really happy with the final shirt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is an excellent course - I re-watch sections of it with every shirt I have made.
