Project

Sailing Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I altered the class pattern a little to incorporate the bias front band and I also added tucks to the back of the shirt for extra ease. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a clean iron and pressing cloth this time and didn't mark the fabric. Be careful matching stripes - I cut most of this out on a single layer. Matching the stripes on the sleeves to the yoke is most difficult.

What you will need

  • Armani cotton shirting "Roamin Waters"

Pam Howard asked:
Hi, Another fabulous job!! I love the way you've done the front band and the pocket, your boss will love it! Thanks so much, Pam
zinc6 answered:
Thanks Pam ... he did love it that it was all made just for him but it turned out too big so I am taking in the side seams now by 1 inch. The front band and pocket idea came from Project Runway - but I do think it makes a fairly conservative shirt a bit interesting.
