Kwik Sew 2935 by briansews (Brian Remlinger)

 

My challenge was to take a shirt design that I would never wear and transform with fabric and seam finishes into something I would most definitely consider taking home.

 

I did not make any changes to the design, only making the sleeves shorter, and bodice longer. Slight shaping to the side seams was also added.

 

Some features of this shirt:

 

* 3 separate vintage sheets used with matching print but different color scheme

* matching vintage buttons

* micro shirt hem

* tuck on short sleeve hem

* flat felled armscye seams (my first attempt at such)

* box pleat instead of side tucks

* French seam finishes on sides and arms

* reversible hat, all blue print one side, orange and pink on the other side
