This shirt is all about the fabric choice and my chance to fussy cut it to make what I envisioned.
Spreading out the panels at Zooks to see all of it
Supply List ~
3 100% cotton panels purchased from Zooks Fabrics in Lancaster, PA
Blue buttons from Nancy's Notions in Lancaster, PA
Interfacing from Steinlauf & Stoellers
I laid out the shirt pattern pieces on the crossgrain to insure the print would go in order around my body. Making sure that the tops of the pattern pieces showed the sky as well as the hydrangea print.
There are no new construction techniques in this make. However, I did add a little more to the body of the sleeve, about a 1/2" on either side. I wanted a big full sleeve for this shirt which I gathered into the cuffs. The cuffs are slightly smaller than my normal cuff which I think I will use in more makes going forward.
So a few pictures ~
Next on the blog is another shirt in the other piece of cotton I bought from Zooks when I purchased this one.
...as always more later!
