Made to Measure Shirts
This is one of the samples for the upcoming Made to Measure shirt workshop at The Academy. It is made from Ce Podolak's Fearless Shirt pattern. It is a great basic shirt pattern! The collar and stand are perfectly drafted and I like the fit across the shoulders and through the bust. Another winner from Ce!
We will be highlighting details found on custom made shirts. This shirt is made from a beautiful, fine 100% cotton I purchased in New York. Notice the precise, small stitching with a length of 20 stitches per inch. Collar, stand and cuffs are all constructed to shape and roll perfectly with a fine, woven sew-in interfacing. Bar tacks are made by hand. Buttonholes are fine and narrow and closed with mother of pearl buttons. All seams are single needle flat felled.
