Shirt production line

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The quality of my shirtmaking is improving and I am getting faster at making them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Making 5 shirts takes longer than one - I got a bit bogged down in the collars and sewing on so many buttons by hand.

Scheri Manson asked:
Fantastic. You can sew your buttons on by machine. Try this tutorial.
zinc6 answered:
Thanks Scheri ... my new machine has this capability but I am always nervous to put anything hard (like a button) in the sewing machine - this helped alot and i think I will try it out on the next shirts I make.
Pam Howard asked:
Hello!!, You should see the smile on my face :-)) This is fantastic! You have really gotten this shirtmaking construction to a very managable task. I really like your method of keeping each shirt together so you won't get confused as to which piece goes to which shirt. I love it! Thanks for sending your pictures. Take care, Pam
zinc6 answered:
Thanks Pam ... I just love shirtmaking, such a practical class - I have now made 19 shirts from your class. On these shirts I finally got the technique of turning the collars right and am so pleased to have mastered this. I find the clothes drying thing very useful for staying organised with my sewing as I often make multiple items at once to save time. Thanks again for taking the time to comment. best, kat.
