Slow Going...

Some, but not much progress on this denim shirt!
Denim Shirt Back
Here is the shirt back, right off the bed of the machine and hastily pinned to my photo-wall.  It features an inverted top-stitched box pleat. The pleat is open for only about 14 inches. This will allow the shirt to be worn "out", but it will also look neat (and not lumpy) should my client decide to tuck the shirt in.  You'll also notice that I've added a loop at CB.  
 

My plan is to attach the yoke tonight, and apply the plackets to the sleeves. If I feel really productive, the fronts will be attached, along with the collar unit. But then again, there's always tomorrow...

That is a great idea for the back pleat design.

I really like that back pleat the way you have done it. I don't normally like blouses, but I think part of the reason is because of the way they are big around the bottom. This would eliminate that problem.
Hmmmm . . . maybe a blouse project is in my future??!

I like the pleat, can't wait to see the finished shirt.

Oh I love that topstiching detail! DH would love that. But how the heck do you sew the seam in the pleat without burying the topstitching?
