My husband is a big fan of my sewing. This may sound like a good thing, and of course, it is, but there is a side effect, which involves actually sewing garments for him, instead of myself. I am sure you can see the drawbacks. In addition, he is no longer satisfied with a quick t shirt. This is entirely my fault.
Here is the only garment I have been working on for the past 2 weeks. My mojo was lethargic.
I like this shirt,but there is little new to write about. I used Vogue 8096, previously adjusted,with some design variations.
1. Chevrons at collar and back yoke due to bias cutting, with a little machine embroidery to hold down the inverted back pleat.
2. David Page Coffin tower plackets with Pamela Erny wrapped contrast cuffs.
3. Contrast collar stand and inner plackets, with under placket extended by 1cm past the cross over as an embellishment.
Fabrics are cotton shirtings from Michael's fabric (red and white stripe) and GoldHawk Rd (grey with black, white and red stripe), topstitching was with a hand cranked Singer 28. I used self fabric interfacing as I have run out of shirting interfacing. ( I bought some more from Pamela Erny's Fashion Sewing Supply site no affiliation etc,- it is on sale today, lucky me) The buttons are a very pale grey, in stripes, which look much nicer than regular white shirting buttons - truly.
The photo shoot was a little limited.Here is the shirt on location, at work, with a flash, work being inside. One photo allowed, headless. Hmmm. I did make modelling a condition of receiving the shirt, but I don't think it was worth bothering about.
It is difficult to tell from the photo that he is very pleased with the garment.
I am very pleased to be cutting out a loud sundress next.
