Vintage Shirt...A Little Progress

Writing an article for a sewing publication among other things, has kept me so busy that I've only been able to make a little progress on Roger's Shirt.

I decided to make banded pockets, cut on the bias. Here's what one looks like on the shirt front, ready to be sewn (I'll adjust the position a bit before stitching).


Pocket on Shirt



This is the pocket from the wrong side. This pocket is cut on the bias, and because I know how rough Roger is on pockets, I needed to stabilize the stretch of the bias cut fabric or they'd be hopelessly stretched-out in no time!

I fused Pro-Sheer Elegance Interfacing (cut on the straight grain) to the wrong side of the pocket. This interfacing is so sheer and flexible that you can barely tell that it's there...yet it completely stabilizes the bias cut fabric.

Hello Pamela! Did you cut the pocket on the bias just so it is visible in the print? Good tip to interface it. Also, is the black contrast cut on the bias as well?

Hi Amy...
Ok, I'll fess up...I cut the pockets on the bias because I am under a time crunch and trying to match this print on both sides of the shirt (2 pockets)would have been a pain. LOL!
The black contrast bands are cut on the cross grain, because that's the only way I could fit them on the fabric scraps I had left after cutting the front facings. {GRIN}
