The hardest thing I have done lately is make this plain Classic White Shirt and this plain white t-shirt. What is the big deal, why do I need these bland pieces in my wardrobe? They are hard to keep "white". Plus, I am a lover of all prints and geometric designs. Sewing solids or even buying solids is one of the most difficult and boring types of sewing I can do aside from making pants. So, when my wardrobe consultant insisted I hunker down and get it done, add more base pieces, I went kicking and screaming off to my sewing cave to do as I was told. The results were, to my surprise, very satisfactory.
I made a 1 1/2" FBA using the seam method.
Lengthened 1" at the waist
Added 3/4" to the sleeve width
All my alterations and fitting details are shown in my video here.
It's part of the Wardrobe Fit-Along I have been doing with my IRL sewing group.
I even filmed a tutorial for you on working with sleeve caps and easing the set-in sleeve fullness without basting here.
Thanks for reading....
Until next time.
