Project

"Pam's" classic tailored shirt

My first stab at sewing anything more complex than a pillowcase. I'm proud that I completed the project without finding too much fault with my work. The most challenging aspect for me was the flat fell seams running along the closing seam of the sleeves and bodice. I often pray for more patience. Maybe sewing is the lesson I've been sent to induce that quality! This project was completed under Pam Howard's tutelage. Great class, great instructor!!

Q&A with pennyduma16681489

Pam Howard asked:
Great job on your first shirt, Penny! Keep making them, you're great at it!
pennyduma16681489 answered:
Thank you, Pam. I just added a picture of the garment on me. I think there are some fit issues I want to work out before I proceed with my next shirt. In general, I think my sloping shoulders cause a poor shoulder seam alignment. Also, it's maybe too full through the upper bodice. Thanks again for all your help! Look forward to watching your other classes:)
