Cotton Gauze Shirt

Ithaca, New York...






I love dress shirts but HATE ironing…especialy during summer.

I wanted to make a cover-up I can throw in my bag and not worry about wrinkles.

I made this shirt with white cotton crinkled gauze…which turned out to be a challenge when I tried to sew on a regular sewing machine. It streched out so much that it was impossible to sew a structured shirt out of…

But when I used the differential feed feature of my serger, the problem was solved! The shirt was put together almost entirely on a serger, and was done in no time!!

I used interfacing on pocket openings and collar stands only. I left the collar soft, and I love the effect!

The photos were taken after carring in my bag and wearing occasionally for a week…no ironing!

    Thanks for the heads up re the fabric stretching . I don’t have a serger but if I ever sew with cotton gauze, I will use my walking foot.
