Stash Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Using my stash - again! I am proud of the fact that I used a shirt pattern made the yoke smaller both width wise and length wise, and added in a side panel. Also changed the seams to 1cm, and used the burrito method for the cuff. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice - and use your stash - means you can buy more fabric.

What you will need

  • Blue stretch cotton from stash
  • buttons and thread from stash.

Pam Howard asked:
Hello! What a beautifully made shirt, and it was free! Great idea to use your stash, I've been doing that lately myself ;-) Lovely re-design to get just what you wanted. I love your quote to ''Just enjoy it'' Thanks so much! Pam
Pohutukawa answered:
My stash is getting manageable!! love your class - when is the next one? I'm making a lovely fabric up into a shirt for work and yes, from my stash. When is your next class?
Bonheur asked:
i don't know what is a stash, but it's a great project.
Pohutukawa answered:
Hello, a stash is all of the fabric that you have purchased but not yet sewn up! All
Pat Mitchell asked:
Love your shirt! Thank you for posting I enjoy seeing your work, this blue is a great shade and must go nicely with your jacket.
Pohutukawa answered:
Yes, I love the jewel colours Pat, what are you sewing?
Pat Mitchell asked:
I am slogging away on my Jacket Express. I have sewn and un sewn every seam( lol). My upscale machine would not sew the heavy seams sooo have set up Miss Freesia Husqvarna. I finished a bag with the final top stitching I had started a long time ago. Love seeing your work.
Pohutukawa answered:
I have a retro Husqvarna which I love! Whatever it takes aye!
