Description

Customer came to work with fabric and one old shirt and wanted a new shirt so…
I made a new pattern and a new shirt from the old lumberjack shirt.
Made “naughty” pockets and naughty cuffs tried to pattern match as good as I colud because in this fabric it was also a fishbone pattern so I couldn´t twist and turn the pattern parts as you are supose to do because I also hade to have the fishbone pattern the right way.
But… it´s matched as good as it get´s.
And since the fabric was s thick I hade to make the lining on cuffs, collar and arms in cotton satin to not get it to thick, impossible to sew in and get it ugly. (It was relly, really thick wool fabric)

Material Notes

Wool fabric, cotton satin and polyester thread.

    Great job with pockets, plackets and snaps. Thick wool-you’d have a lot of lint to clean from the feed dogs and bobbin casing. Looks marvellous.

      Hahaha,og TAKK Maria.
      Du behöver ikke bli misunnelig, du är ju själv JÄTTEDUKTIG :D
      Har aldrig gillat rutigt tyg förrens jag var tvungen att börja jobba med det på jobbet men nu måste jag säga att rutigt är ju “da shit”, jag äskar att sy i rutigt tyg och få mönsterpassa.
      Detta tyg gick ju då tyvärr inte att mönsterpassa på traditionellt sätt pga fiskbensmönstret i ränderna men då fick jag mönsterpassa ränderna “färgmässigt” istället på vissa ställen men det funkade ju det också. ;)
