Mans Shirt

Well after the last de-stash event, I picked up this glorious fabric for myself, well guess what the other half spotted in and said “could I have a shirt from it”, how could I say no, so out came Simplicity 9469 again, along with a new collar that I drew up. Now this is not quite finished, but it is getting there, all the hems have been done by hand as I had to fill time when sitting in the hospital awaiting a child from surgery. All that is left to do is the buttons and button holes.

Should be another two or three weeks to get that done, I said to myself and guess what I managed to carve out some time today and it is now finished.

Simplicity 9469 Shirt


Okay it is cut out (one thing I did not notice was the print ran sideways and because of the fabric it now runs across his chest, not to happy with that), and that is all I can say, I do have a deadline though to finish it by though, so best get cracking about the rest of my cutting jobs, so I can just sew sew sew and sew.

Glad to say that deadline now extended.

Tis Finished At Last


DSCN1112It is finally finished, it has been a long slog (see previous posts) with a lot going on at other times from garden reno, to paint stripping in the house to other sewing for gifts, but yes at long last it is done.

It has been a labour of love as it has been great fun, from using mens ties for the bias, roughly eleven meters of it and all second hand. The fabrics I used came from mens shirts and fat quarters, old lace I had and fabric from op shops.

Burda 7525 Mans Shirt


IMAG1043Okay ladies and gents my man requested no in fact picked the fabric for his shirt for Christmas so then I had to make it and this was the pattern I chose.

It had to be changed to fit him as he is very broad-shouldered, unfortunately I did not make a toil this time around (time constraints), so wish I had as he needed just a tad more…

Now this is the finished shirt, yes I am quite pleased and he has tried it on and it does fit, just needs a tad more across the shoulders for the next one…
