Sewing a pattern that you know fits really well is extremely enjoyable and satisfying. I needed to do some of that sewing last week so I made Chris two new shirts. I used McCalls 6044 and previously shared the changes I made to the pattern.
I did have an exciting new tool for these shirts - a flat felling foot, it makes flat felling so much quicker and neater.
This is the last of the shirting fabric I bought in New York last year. I do regret not buying more, it is beautiful to sew and Chris likes to wear it.
I bought the green stripe in Bali a couple of years ago. It is quite slippery compared to the other fabric, but it sewed up nicely. I left off the pocket because I knew I couldn't get it to match properly when sewing it on and it would have driven me crazy.
