Pattern: Simplicity 9024 Extra-Sure Pattern from 1979
Fabric: printed cotton remnant
Style: Shirt with front button closing with collar, pocket and cap sleeves.
Time taken: less than 5 hours (about 2 evenings)
- I used slightly smaller buttons from my button jar
- The iron-on interfacing I used was very lightweight and I used two layers of it (probably unnecessarily but it seemed a good idea at the time)
- I tapered the seam line from the waist to widen the shirt slightly at the hemline for a smoother fit over jeans.
- Instead of pinking the edges, I overlocked them.
