Toddler Shirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? drafting the pattern for the collar band and I did a better job of matching stripes on the sleeve/yoke What advice would you give someone starting this project? making a smaller shirt is more difficult in that all the curves are tighter and it is more difficult to get smooth seams.

What you will need

  • Left over Armani Italian cotton "Roamin waters" from mens shirt project

Q&A with zinc6

Pam Howard asked:
Hello!!, I would say that you were more than ''semi-successful'' with your pattern drafting skills! You have done a wonderful job with this shirt, and there will be a very lucky little boy who receives it! Great job on matching the stripes, I love it :-)) Thanks so much for taking my class, Pam
zinc6 answered:
Thanks Pam for doing the class ... it is one of the best I have taken on Craftsy and your calm approach reminds me of why I make things. The collar band didn't quite fit the shirt being about 1/2 inch too big ... I am going to work on it over my holidays. I ended up giving this shirt to my boss's grandson so they can be matching on the boat.
Scheri Manson asked:
Really great looking shirts. Excellent job on stripes :-) Amazing the quality of the shirts being posted from Pam's class. A testament to her excellent teaching skills.
zinc6 answered:
Thanks Sheri ... not as perfect as yours but I have only really started making clothing seriously this year. I agree Pam's class is excellent ... she explains so clearly that a professional result is not difficult to achieve with patience.

this is jaw dropping!

Thanks Nancy ... glad you like it.
Mary Stern asked:
This is simply beautiful! I am now inspired to take Pam's class. Thank you for sharing your efforts.
zinc6 answered:
Thanks mkslcsw - I would highly recommend Pam's class ... it is one of the best I've taken on Craftsy. But make a full size shirt first before attempting a childs one ... the smaller one was more difficult.
