Ithaca, New York...
I love dress shirts but HATE ironing…especialy during summer.
I wanted to make a cover-up I can throw in my bag and not worry about wrinkles.
I made this shirt with white cotton crinkled gauze…which turned out to be a challenge when I tried to sew on a regular sewing machine. It streched out so much that it was impossible to sew a structured shirt out of…
But when I used the differential feed feature of my serger, the problem was solved! The shirt was put together almost entirely on a serger, and was done in no time!!
I used interfacing on pocket openings and collar stands only. I left the collar soft, and I love the effect!
The photos were taken after carring in my bag and wearing occasionally for a week…no ironing!
