consolidation 5/10 shirts.
I thought I would consolidate my shirt making project and post them all together - This is my half way mark - 5/10 and I have actually made 3/4's of shirt No 6. Sadly I didn't have a flat fell foot in the flat so had to stop after setting in the sleeves, and stupidly forgot to pack the collar stand for No. 6. I will take the part-made shirt with me today, to finish at the cottage later tonight.
I am delighted to say Mike has been wearing all the shirts and seems really happy with them. Phew what a relief. I told one of my work colleagues about this "shirts for a bag scheme", and she said "oh dear be careful, he may only be wearing them to be kind to you". I confess this did get me worried and of course I had to ask him if he was truly happy with the shirts, and wanted me to make them for him. I am pleased to say he was delighted with them.
Shirts 2,3 and 5 all have collar stays in them. 3,4 and 5 have small pleats in the back. Some have white contrasting collar stand, cuffs and inside yoke. I am trying to do something different for each of the shirts. I managed to purchase some great fabrics on Saturday and they will sew into some funky shirts so watch this space.
Catch you later..........
