Christmas is a great time to use my friends as guinea pigs for new sewing projects. I found this blue-green flannel while looking for something else of course, and I envisioned a Western shirt with pearl snaps and piping. I have never piped nor attempted to pipe anything, so I bought some piping…
I already had the McCall’s M6044 pattern. I used the internet to get some tips on said piping and I kind of did ok. It’s certainly not perfect nor pointy enough at the yokes, collar and flaps, but it’s a start. I also don’t think I’ll ever make another buttonhole again after discovering pearl snaps! Just bang ‘em on? Sold. Biggest issue was getting the bias cut pieces to work out right. They didn’t quite and I’d love tips on that.
