Readers, I know the changes are subtle -- a muted purple inside collar stand attached to a regular collar -- but I like this version of my tan shirt much more than the earlier one. I've decided I'm not really into shirts with just collar bands; my neck's too long for them, or my face is too narrow. Or something.
I haven't treadled in a while and I thought I might use it to make my gingham shirt. It's such fun to use and stitches so beautifully. My 66 dates from 1920 and uses back-clamping feet. I own quite a few, fortunately (more than I actually use).
I'm a native New Yorker and sewing fanatic! I started sewing in 2009 and today make all my own clothes using vintage sewing machines and vintage patterns, in addition to sewing for private clients.
