Mens Classic Tailored Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The beautiful stitches Check out all the pictures of my sewing process for this shirt on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/scheri_sews/ What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check the pattern as Pam recommends and add the 3/8" to the seams included are 1/4". It's much easier to use Pams Finger Felling Technique than a felling foot. Love the "Yoke Trick" Try using Embroidrey Thread you may need to use a metallic needle.

What you will need

  • - Pam Howards online Craftsy Class - David P Coffin Shirtmaking book and DVD - Flat Felling Foot and rolled hem foot - Rayon Thread & Metallic Needle - Oxford Cotton - Wooden Buttons
