Happy Tuesday everyone!
I finished my household chores (vacuum, laundry, vessel in sink) and finally thought I should share my first attempt of sewing Shirt. I was thrilled when I decide to make shirt and very happy the way it turned out, better than what I thought. After sewing my clothes for so long, I was always scared to try boy's shirt. But I couldn't believe how quickly I could sew this little man's shirt! Joining collar to back bodice was a little tricky; otherwise the whole shirt was faster to sew.
I made my pattern from one of his shirts; it had 3pattern pieces- front and back bodice and the sleeve which made it easier to sew. Oh and I can’t forget to mention the trial and error during the process. I traced the pattern on the fabric. However it hit me at a somewhat awkward shoulder line. I decided that it was one of place that in need of altering and corrected few measurements around shoulder and collar.
I love this checked fabric from my stash laying there for long. I gave my best shot; and now ready to wear in public. I love the finished creation; it was not bad for first attempt.
After a lovely weekend we were on our way back home. It was beautiful sunny afternoon I took these photos inside the car. Aryan was busy playing with his puppies.
Anyway Aryan loved his full hand shirt! Isn't he looks cute.
So what was your first attempt sewing project? Did it turn out better than what you thought?
