She changed her mind!

Usually when I plan to sew in the evening and something interrupts me, I am one totally annoyed shirt-maker. But this time, the interruption was a pleasant one...and a timely one as it turned out.

The friend for whom I am making a blouse dropped by unexpectedly, made her way down to my studio, saw this fabric..and promptly changed her mind! We are still going to go with white collar and cuffs.....but this is the shirt fabric....the final choice...final...as in she doesn't get to change her mind again. {smile} I'm telling you..I was **this** close to cutting into the other fabric I posted a pic of yesterday !


To the best of my recollection,this Italian cotton shirting fabric was purchased from GORGEOUS FABRICS last year.

Pam, I know I've read articles where they say that the under collar should be slightly smaller than the top collar piece. Not necessary?

I have found that with lightweight fabrics cutting the upper and under collar the same size is fine...with careful pressing the seam line lays perfectly on the edge.

With heavier fabrics like denim, linen, and hemp....I do trim a tiny, scant amount (approx 1/16") from the under-collar, so that after construction the seam rolls to the underside.
