UFO #2 - Pinstriped Shirt

Besides the jacket mentioned below, this is my #2 priority UFO to finish up, hopefully before the weekend. It only needs me to complete the 3rd buttonhole triangle tab thingie, topstitch the front closure, sew on buttons, make buttonholes (on those tabs) and hem.

UFO #2


Cuff Detail


Collar and Tab Detail


Back yoke applique and locker loop


So far this one has gone like clockwork with no headaches and frustrations. I've probably now jinxed myself...

UPDATE

I've finished the tabs, the top-stitching on the center front and applying the buttons. The only thing left is to hem and do a snap at the base of the collar. This will be finished easily tomm. It fits perfectly. Not a fit wrinkle anywhere.

Neat shirt! I need to mix different fabrics like that more often.

Charity, the plaid trim looks super on your blouse. For some reason, I really love the cuffs on that blouse. Where did you get the dragonfly applique?

LauraLo said...

Beautiful shirt, I really like your choice of trim! It deserves to be finished quick!

Thanks, ladies! :) Paula - I bought two of these dragonfly appliques at the Puyallup Sewing Expo. They are screenprinted.

You do fabulous work!
This is wonderful...all the details are perfection!

Thanks, Dawn and Lindsay! I'm happy with it. It's an OOP pattern (I have a draft review up on PR), but I think it's going to be a TNT for a classic notch collar blouse or shirt dress for me. I have so few TNTs that I'm grateful this worked out.
