A Classic Summer Shirt...of Light Textured Silk

A Classic Summer Sport Shirt

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.

What a beautiful shirt, Pam. You have such a great eye for details! I shamelessly copied your cigar pocket last year and it was a big hit.

The contrasting details are terrific. I just posted on my blog a shirt I am making, and used your tutorial on attaching a collar band. It turned out perfect! Thank you.

Once again - gorgeous. I've noticed that you often use the contrasting fabric as the yoke lining, and I love the way that looks.
