Can you relate?


Quick now, what’s wrong with this picture???  Can you name at least three things?  Clearly, it’s been a long while since I sewed up a tailored shirt, and it shows…..back to the drawing board….sigh….


It’s even worse on the inside, where my machine decided it didn’t like the jeans thread in both the needle and bobbin…grrrrr

…running off to re-cut a new collar stand….

  1. Oh, arrgh! I think we all feel your pain. How about a fabulous design element to save it? Decorative frog? Fancy chain?

  2. Just fold the collar down over the band and no one will notice 🙂

  3. Ah, the joys of fussy little details in shirt collars! Commiserating with you, and words of encouragement to persevere!!!

  4. Oh yes….that looks familiar…last time I made a shirt, I drew the stitching line on with an air erasing pen…and achieved matched ‘ends’ first time! Hallelujah!

  5. Oh yeah. Can relate very well.. This in one of the things that puts me off sewing shirts.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
