Bells & Whistles Shirt Sewing Workshop Pattern
Here is a fun shirt sewn up using a Sewing Workshop pattern and the sewing techniques outlined in my latest article for Vogue pattern magazine. I used a 100% cotton blue and white striped shirting fabric, red buttons and added hand made red bar tacks. I lengthened the pattern by 2". The floating band can be buttoned in various positions or left hanging. Visit the Creativ festival at the International Centre in Toronto this coming weekend April 24, 25 & 26. I will be showing this shirt and others during my Shirt Details lecture.
