Pinstripe classic shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How well the pinstripes match. Sometimes the stripes actually helped. And I love the buttons. What advice would you give someone starting this project? View the entire tutorial first, making any notes around potentially changing the look of the shirt, or tips on fabric, then view it again when you are ready to start sewing.

What you will need

  • Soft Italian cotton
  • heavier drape
  • with laundry buttons. I added an extra button on the front band
  • it worked better for me in terms of placement as I'm long in body. I didn't lengthen the shirt. Distance between buttons is 3.5 inches.
