What are you most proud of? Manageing to get all the pieces cut out of an existing shirt. My collars are improving - I think I have finally got the technique of turning them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't do this. And don't use polyester - it was really horrible to sew with after those nice UK & Italian shirting cottons. The fabric had alot less ease and puckered easily even when sewing taut seams as Pam advises.
