Shirt month

On That Sewing Blab in April, we focused on shirts – shirt making, tips, techniques and thrifting.

I grabbed a remnant fabric from my stash and made New Look 6407, View A.

It has lots of design lines you can adjust to fit you better. I did a forward shoulder adjustment and a sway back adjustment.

More curves means a few more adjustments, like I’ll adjust the back again for the next shirt.

The front sits fairly well and this fabric has no stretch in it.

There are a lot of variations within this pattern so I know I’ll use it again. Once you know how to adjust patterns to cater to your curves, sewing just gets easier.

If you can’t watch That Sewing Blab live, go to the YouTube channel to catch up on all the shirt making broadcasts we did.
