Textured Cotton Shirt with Cross-Stripe Detail

Click on photo to enlarge and see detail, click "back-button" to return to blog.

This shirt with banded sleeves, banded pocket, and "Cross-Stripe" details was commissioned by a client of mine. I sent a swatch of the fabric, an unusual mid-weight cotton, with an interesting textured stripe. As soon as he saw it, he called and asked me to design a shirt that showed-off this beautiful fabric.

In addition to the stripe details, this shirt has an interesting neckline that is a bit wider than usual, with a subtle "U" shape, rather than the usual round neckline curve. When worn, the collar sits slightly away from the neck, making it very comfortable in hot weather.

Pro-Weft interfacing was used to form and maintain the collar's soft shape and roll.

Beautiful. You did such a perfect job of matching the stripes that the pocket is nearly invisible right up to the band at the top. Very interesting design, your client will receive lots of raves on this shirt for sure.

Man, this could have been my *go to * shirt this summer. Babes would have fallen at my feet seeing such a gnarly shirt upon my back.

I gotta get one of those. How do you go about that process ?
