Carls Shirt

Added Mar 20, 2008

New York, New Yo...






My first shirt from scratch. It was a lot easier than trying to tailor an already made shirt. I added another pocket and I don’t have buttons yet, they’re coming soon. For the next one I’m going to slim down the collar and make some weird pockets for all the pens I carry.

    I noticed there are a lot of alterations to be made to the pattern. I re-cut the neckline and collar so it would fit me 100% every time I made the shirt. My first collar came out too big – same problem you had. Good job!

    Thanks everyone. As soon as I get ahold of some more Spring fabrics, I’m going to get a few more sewn up. As soon as some more patterns go up, I’ll jump on those too. I’d do a tie, but it would never get worn.
