With my trusty Bernina 717 sewing machine (its an oldie!) set up in the shop at 108 George Street, Launceston, I am having a marvelous time trialling various patterns with all the fabulous fabric available.
A pattern I have had for some time but have now finally tried out is a Simplicity Pattern No. 2741 which is an "Easy-to-sew" pattern offering mens/women's shirts - with and without collar, vest and boxer shorts. I have made the collared shirt and it has come out beautifully. Really happy with the pattern and the fit. Have made the shirt M (medium) size for my husband Andrew who normally wears a shirt size of 40" give or take.
We used a fine Maltese fusing for collar, neck band and cuffs and it works beautifully.
A customer made this little boys shirt below from current fabric stock. How gorgeous!
