Royal Polo Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am very pleased with how the positioning of the embroidery turned out. I also used tips from Ultimate T-Shirt to reset the shoulders for a better fit. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose a cheap purchased shirt ( $9.95 ) Pick a design and be patient. Take care with measuring and placement. Try the garment on in front of a mirror to make sure you like the look. I found that the "visual" center of this polo shirt is NOT the "measured" center and had to adjust the placement to accommodate. I bought a large size to fit my hips and needed to reset the drop shoulders 1 inch to get a more pleasing fit.

Q&A with Sarg

Pohutukawa asked:
That looks fab! So clever. I have an embroidery machine but placement bugs me, yours looks perfect!
Sarg answered:
Thanks. Not without some trauma and a few unpicked stitches but I am pretty pleased with it. These shirts are perfect for camping.

What a great job, perfect placement, and I love the tone-on-tone with the blue.
Sarg answered:
Thank you. The photos don't really show how pretty the royal blue is.
Nanna Val asked:
Great job Sarg, the placement is great and an awesome job on the shoulders. Really looks more expensive than $9.95 Thanks for sharing.
Sarg answered:
Thank you Nanna Val. I love these classes. I've been having a great time and there is always a new way to do things and it is fun to share.
SweetJasmine asked:
I find the placement as one of the more challenging things in machine embroidery and you did a great job!
Sarg answered:
Thank you Sweet Jasmine. Lots of measuring and a couple of false starts but it turned out very nicely in the end.
Pat Mitchell asked:
Your Polo Shirt looks wonderful. Getting more than one design on a garment is daunting! You nailed it!
Sarg answered:
Thanks Pat. I liked this design so much that I did several colour versions.
