Classic Tailored Shirt

What are you most proud of? Over-stitching, flat felled seams, and being patient. This has improved my confidence in sewing enormously! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the videos, take your time, and use your iron. I don't have a fancy sewing machine, nor do you need one to sew straight seams.

You Can Make This

DonnaDeCourcy made Classic Tailored Shirt with:

  • I used fabric that is traditionally used for tablecloths
  • so it has a heavier weight
  • resists stains and has a fabulous drape.

Q&A with DonnaDeCourcy

Davesmom asked:
I love your shirt! It fits really good for your first shirt. It looks so dressy. Great work. I have this course but have not tried making a shirt yet. I need to retire so I have more time for all my projects.
DonnaDeCourcy answered:
Retirement is great! I am just coming up to my first year anniversary of Retirement. I feel like I have been playing all year!
hopflower asked:
This turned out great! I am starting this course within the week. I hope I do as well as you did.
DonnaDeCourcy answered:
Good luck with your shirt! I think this has been my most successful sewing class in sewing something for myself. I loved Pam's quiet, calm approach. and I find that she gets back to your questions very quickly.
