Brushed Denim Shirt...Distressed around the Edges


Lately I have been spending all my free time in my studio making Shirts!  This is one of them, a Brushed Denim Shirt, featuring a Double-Pocket with Distressed Edges.   The distressing on the pocket and all the top-stitched seams was done by rubbing them lightly with fine-grit sandpaper.

SEWING NOTES:  Pattern- my original design and hand-draft. Fabric- from my shirt-making stash. Interfacing- ProWoven Shirt Crisp from www.FashionSewingSupply.com

 


Buttons--  These New smoothly
polished 1/2-inch 4-hole

Menswear Shirt With Shaped Yoke


I had a few moments to snap a pic of this shirt 
just before Fedex was due to pick it up and send it to my client.

It is made from a reversible cotton/rayon blend shirting featuring tiny herringbone checks, that has a soft limp drape...and should be very comfortable to wear during my client's temperate winter climate.  As you can see, I used the predominantly green side for most of the shirt pieces, and chose to cut the shaped yoke, button and front plackets and pocket accents from the reverse side.

SEWING NOTES--  Pattern is my own hand-draft. Fabric is from my wholesale supplier. Interfacing used is ProWoven Light-Crisp Fusible from www.FashionSewingSupply.com
