child's shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Matching the palids - although the back is not matched vertically with the collar and as well the plaid is not sewn as continuous around body in direction. My son liked it better this way! What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is really an easy shirt - very rewarding as it goes quickly :-) I used a mix of Pam's and Janet's techniques to make this - it turned out well!

What you will need

  • A 2-way directional plaid in cotton. The pattern is Janet Praey's youth easy shirt
