Description

Using a free pattern I found on Burda Style free patterns (my first of Burda patterns) I created the Port Elizabeth shirt adding a zipper and using thread the same bright color as the zipper ( I am a sucker for bright zippers). Instead of trying to hide the stitch, I used the zig-zag setting on my sewing machine. The seams were sewn twice. (I am unsure of this technique but if someone knows the name I’d love to add it to my techniques) First, the pieces were joined with a simple stitch on the inside of the shirt. Then, the excess was folded to it’s original side and resewn with the zig-zag stitch exposing the stitch to the inside and outside of the shirt.

Material Notes

Linen from Jem Fabric Warehouse on Broadway in NYC, 20 in zipper, thread
