Collar Experiments…

Well,  I haven’t given up sewing shirts yet.  Just been too busy to do much.

This is my current work in progress. The fabric is a cotton broadcloth with a rather stiff hand.   I dyed the fabric myself as a experiment. Fun, but I don’t know what I am doing with it yet.

The major experiment here is the collar.   I am trying to create a collar that has some structure to it such that, with or without a tie it still looks good.  The stiff fabric probably helps.June-18-16-Aqua2

 

Here are the  collar and stand pieces  (3/8 in seam allowance)

I am moderately happy the with the results of this experiment.  More experimentation to be done…

Next,   I need to get the sleeves on this shirt.

 

And now for a little serendipitous art:
