HOT PATTERNS Princess Shirt

This is my version of the Hot Patterns "Plain And Simple Princess Shirt", fashioned from buttery soft Ultra Suede. This garment is interfaced with Pro-Weft Fusible Interfacing.

While this shirt has basic princess style lines, the pattern is drafted in a sophisticated manner. Rather than the usual Convertible Collar/facing combo that is "supposed" to look like a lapel...this pattern is drafted with a classic tailored collar and lapel. This makes for a very smooth flat revers and a collar/lapel that rolls into perfect position and stays there!

I have made this style many times, in fabrics from denim, to silk, to the eggplant Ultra Suede pictured here. I highly recommend this pattern, and will continue to use it myself again and again because of the many style variations that are possible. Piped seams, slot seams, felled seams, bias cut, and contrasting color collar/lapels all represent interesting design opportunities!

This is one beautiful shirt. I have looked at this pattern on occasion, but have been reluctant to purchase Hot Patterns because of the issues when choosing a correct pattern size. I may give it a whirl as I do enjoy this style shirt.

I tried to make this but had trouble following directions attaching the collar to the body. Did you follow the directions or did you have an alternative? Mind sharing? Thanks.

Glad you had such success with this pattern. I really like the fabric you used and its color.

I was all set to set this pattern aside and maybe even sell it. Now that I have seen yours, I am in love with all over again.

Pam, This is just beautiful! You make HP look very tempting, but then all of your things are just right. :)

Absolutely impeccable! I own many HPs but passed on this one - a mistake I must rectify immediately!

Thanks for the nice comments about this style!

The anonymous commenter said she/he had problems attaching the collar. This style was designed with a classic "Tailor's Collar/Lapel" combination that requires the sew-er to slash the neckline of the body of the shirt at the inset corner, then spread that area to match the rest of the collar...so that the collar can continue to be sewn to the neckline of the shirt. It's difficult to put into words here in this comment area, but actually not hard to sew at all. Soon I will be posting a tutorial with step-by-step photos.

Thanks again for your comments!

I recently finished my muslin of this blouse - and I'm pleased with the fit. But the collar directions are somewhat confusing. I'm looking forward to your tutorial. Your blouse is sensational and I love the way the collar looks.
