On shirt making

1

I hope you had a good weekend, we had a three day break, it was nice.

A few months ago, I took a dress shirt making class at the Workroom with Celine.

We made shirts from scratch, by that I mean drafting the pattern too. I learned a lot of things about pattern making, and my understanding of sewing is on a different level now. I'm so glad I did it.

The pink shirt I made in Class, and the plaid one, I altered the pattern of pattern K in Stylish dress book 1. I've never altered or "designed" patterns before, so this is the first. I'm so very happy with how it turned out.

Other summer shirts are in the planning already.
