Tailored Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The finish and the fabric just 'pops'! What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have made several shirts prior to this tute, and Pam has taught me some great tips which I now follow. Try french seams for the sleeve seams and side seams as this is easier and looks very professional. Use 'steam a seam' for the placement of the pocket and on the collar stand-that way you don't have to remove pins whilst sewing thus no movement of fabric. I use steam a seam on everything and it really helps - gives such a professional finish !

What you will need

  • Liberty Tana Lawn cotton fabric
