A Classic Summer Shirt...of Light Textured Silk
I recently designed this Classic Summer Sport Shirt
for one of my favorite clients.
Made from the lightweight textured silk shirting pictured to the left, it features a pocket and sleeves accented with piping.
To give this 1950's inspired shirt a modern look, it also features a straight-edge collar stand and an angled "Spade Hem".
SEWING NOTES: Original design hand-drafted pattern, Fabric from my collection of shirting fabrics, Collar unit interfaced with PRO-SHEER ELEGANCE Fusible Interfacing from Fashion Sewing Supply.
