This is a completely different fabric from the other shirts, its a crepe and doesn't have the crispness of the shirting cotton, but the fabric is lovely and more important Mike loves it. Its modelled here with the Hermes tie I purchased for Mike in a charity shop for an unbelievable price.
I tried a different method for attaching the collar to the shirt this time using a useful tip provided by
Margyh who sews some wonderful garments. Click the link for the full details, but in short, the Collar band is partially sewn first leaving the bottom edge open and a gap in the top edge to pull the shirt neck edge through. Once these are sewn together the upper collar is pushed through the opening and then sewn. I quite like this method (thanks Margyh) and now want to try it again using cotton shirting again.
So here we have it, only 4 shirts to go - its getting exciting for me, Mike says terrifying for him (have no idea why).
Catch you later...................
