Project

Classic Tailored Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Everything! The fit. The quality of my stitching. My precision. I certainly took more care with this one and everything fitted together perfectly!Oh, and I love the three buttons on each cuff. Not sure if you can see it properly in the photo, but I thought it would give it a more feminine look! Very pleased!PS: now that we're talking about buttons, Pam recommended a spacing of 4" (10cm) between each button but mine are set at 8cm. I'm happy with this overall look.If it interests you, feel free to read more about my sewing adventures at my blog: http://snazzysewnsew.wordpress.com/ What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy it. There's nothing hard about this one and within a couple of days you'll have a gorgeous garment you can wear. I have already bought and washed my next shirt fabric and can't wait to get started!

What you will need

  • Dobby Stretch Cotton/Nylon/Spandex AND McCalls Pattern # M6649 (slightly modified) - hard to see that it's the same pattern!

Hi!, I have three words for you: Fab-U-Lous!!! Fantastic job, no one would know that you made this shirt unless you told them :-)) I love the fit, and yes, buttonhole spacing is what will work for you. Love the 3 buttons on the cuff. I can't wait to see the next one! Thanks for posting your pictures, Pam
