Shirtmaking - the real attempt
I finished a shirt for my husband today. I spent nearly all week making samples, and from Saturday evening to late today making this, so it feels like a major achievement. I have mixed feelings about it.
Claudine, who left a comment (I'm paraphrasing)that making a man's shirt is a bit like quilting - I seemed to use my omnigrid and the edging foot an awful lot!
I am happy that this looks just as good as a RTW sports shirt. It took about 12 hours after the toile to make it this way. I think a trip to Myer would be quicker and less expensive - but then my husband would not be quite so pleased with me! Hopefully the next shirt will be much quicker.
