When you’ve just made a simple pair of dungarees as your third item of handmade clothing, what do you do next?
A pirate shirt, of course!
I sewed the main seams by machine, but did all the seam-felling, reinforcement patches, hems…..
…..buttons and buttonholes by hand. (Machine buttonholes are beyond my skills at the moment!)
I’m so happy with how it came out!
Look at the pouffiness of the sleeves! The neatness of the cuffs! I used Bernadette Banner’s excellent video tutorial to guide me, though this is made from cotton, not linen. I cannot wait to make more of my own clothes, it is so satisfying!
Anyways, see ya!
