Friends, I am happy to report that I finished my cotton voile shirt over the weekend.
As you can see above (and below), the fabric is delicate and slightly sheer. It wasn't hard to work with, but I handled it very gently and used a fresh new needle in my Singer 201.
Here are some close-ups:
The completed collar, before attaching.
The collar, now attached.
Inside collar stand.
Flat-felled seams on the side panels.
Hidden button placket.
Me modeling the shirt. The fit is good though I might have done a small sloping shoulder adjustment. I like it a lot and I look forward to wearing it when the weather warms up.
And that's it -- onward and upward!
Have a great day, everybody!
