SHIRTS WITH STYLE Make shirts you'll never find in a store. Choose your details, stitch them perfectly, and show off your sewing skills.
At Every Angle is the perfect pattern for your next shirt. It has eye-catching details, great style, and opportunities for you to learn new techniques. Here are some examples. Details are below.
On our Stitch To Style blog, I've been posting as I've made my own version of an At Every Angle shirt. The blog posts illustrate and explain how to create the details of this shirt so you can duplicate them, then dream up your own variations. Start with the blog post from May and follow along. I'll be finishing my shirt this week, and blogging each step. Take a look-------
On my more recent shirt, I matched the motifs down the center front. I'll be blogging about buttonholes this week on the Stitch to Style blog. My first post (the May post) was about how to lay out your pattern to match motifs on the center fronts.
Motifs are matched down center back as well.
Motifs on the pocket are also matched.
Pocket matching on my other shirt.
I matched the center front motifs on my first shirt as well. Aren't these ladies fun?
Here's my hem stitching at center back on my new shirt.
And here is the center back on my first shirt. Note the 2 lines of stitching down the center back, done in contrasting thread. A different interpretation.
The collar and the sleeves of this shirt are constructed in a somewhat unusual way. Of course, the techniques are explained and illustrated in the pattern, but you can see them done on the Stitch to Style blog. Join me there for an easy way to see the step-by-steps.
