Decided to try my hands on making a shirt for the boy, before now things like collars and placket used to put some fear into me, Used Burda pattern 9792 and made the long sleeved version.
|Overlocked the seams to achieve a 'clean' look.|
Took me about 4 hours to make this shirt, and I am happy I tried. the collar for this pattern in a single piece, guessing simpler than the two piece version.
At least now I am starting to understand how collars and plackets work.
|Waistcoat and Trouser|
This is the waistcoat and trouser I made for the Paris wedding. it was made using black corduroy fabric. It came through pretty quickly... as it as been made before in navy blue corduroy. I used the size 4 years pattern for my 4yrs old, so I would say it is true to size for him.
Some people have problems understand burda pattern instructions, but I must say I have had no problems with them. Although I did give the collar making part a very very good look to understand it.
Thanks for coming around.
