sewing a shirt: done!

And we have a final product! And it actually looks like a shirt, and is completely wearable in public, so that is a huge plus.

Its not quite perfect, but I think its a pretty solid first attempt. I also feel as if I have uncovered one of the world’s great secrets. Everybody is wearing clothes, but not everybody knows how they are made. I can join that secret club now.

Its fun to look back through the pictures and remember all the “firsts.” Also, all the calls and texts to my ma asking her if it was looking right.sewashirt5

Sometimes I just had to remind myself to go step-by-step, and it would magically become whatever it was supposed to be.sewashirt4

The continuous lap part. Thank goodness for youtube.sewashirt3

I’ve made buttonholes before, but I’ve never sewn on a button with the machine. The button foot is a little scary looking, but we made friends.sewashirt2sewashirt1

I’m excited to make another one! Maybe some spring fabric? Of course, now that my flannel shirt is done, the weather has decided to warm up a bit here.sewashirt6sewashirt7
