Candy Striper Shirt

The quest continues. I’m determined to get a perfectly fitted shirt out of the 04/2010 Long sleeved shirt pattern. This time I used the pattern printed off at 90% with a bunch of alterations and lots more needed for my next one. You can read more deets here and here if you’re curious. Or just come by to say ‘hello!’

This is the first shirt I made where I used all of David Page Coffin’s “Shirtmaking” techniques. It was…uh…enlightening?

Material Notes

Red and white striped cotton shirting that I didn’t realize until way too late would look pink. I used 100% cotton buckram to interface the collar and sleeves. Parenthetically, if you’re looking for the perfect shirt interfacing, use buckram.

    Beautifully done. I have the same book; but have not tackled one so detailed as you did yet. Enlightening is a good word for that book!

      Thank you! There are still tweaks that I need to make to be 100% happy with it so your kind words are much appreciated!
