My_first_shirt_080_large

Description

Bought this fabric at Joann for $2 and had some buttons from my hubby’s old shirt. Decided to try this shirt pattern and am liking the result. I’ve put on weight since I cut the pattern so the fit is a little snug. Hopefully,I’ll lose these extra pounds soon…I used wax free transfer paper for marking button placement but those marks didn’t come off during the wash;any ideas/suggestions to remove them are most welcome…

    Beautiful shirt! Looks like it fits you well. I wouldn’t worry about the extra couple of pounds. Good luck on the shirt for the hubby!

      Thank you so much for appreciating my first attempt! I’m usually very nervous with interfacings and buttons and go really slow but this was worth it.

    Looks real nice, I don’t think it’s snug! For the marks try dish soap or oxy clean spot remover gel. Just put it on before laundry and let it stand a little bit or soak it. Next time try a disappearing marker. You can get it at Jo Ann or Walmart.

      Thanks for the compliment Timi and thanks for taking the time to suggest the solution for those placement marks. I’ll use the disappearing marker next time.

      Thanks Cynthia! Also thanks for your reply on the men’s shirt pattern question! We are both bitten by a shirt sewing bug I guess…
