Lots of progress!
Wow, either I am getting better at this sewing thing or this is just a speedy project. After all it is a teeny tiny little shirt. Did I mention that it was small too? Tonight I assembled the collar and stand.
Then I attached it.
Then I attached the sleeves and sewed up the side seams.
Thank you for all your kind comments and suggestions on my last post about the matching. I actually feel a lot better about my matching today. Sometimes you just need some time to get some perspective. Right?
I changed the order of construction a little bit. (Aren’t I all grown up now?) The instructions said to sew the shirt hem before sewing up the side seams and I thought that was silly. Of course, now that I am typing this, I am worrying that I got too cocky and maybe should have followed the letter of the law. Oh well, I can’t worry about it now. 😉
I still have to have to serge the side seam SA’s, make the buttonholes, attach the buttons, and hem the sleeves and bottom of the shirt. I actually feel pretty confident that I can do all that Friday night. Am I nuts???
Some more pics just because I can…
I do have an idea to add an embellishment to the shirt, but it’s a secret as I think my sister reads my blog sometimes. If she doesn’t she’s in big trouble. Hahahaha!
Happy sewing everyone!
P.S. Carolyn pointed out to me that I neglected to mention the store that was having a great sale in NYC. It’s P&S Fabrics on Broadway below Canal and above Worth. I’m a dork. What can I say?
