Classic Shirt No. 7

Project Description

What are you most proud of? On this shirt I reworked the collar so that it follows the natural curves of the body. The pockets and cuff have a sloped side. I shortened the back of the shirt about 1/2" so that it would hang nicer and I also curved the side seams in a little bit. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to use your seam ripper. Mistakes happen.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton shirting fabric
