3 Shirts in 3 Days

Saturday, February 20, 2010
For me to sew 3 shirts in 3 days is not an unusual thing. Usually I can sew at least 3 shirts in a day, but with all the business duties on my agenda these days,  it's extraordinary that I had the time to squeeze these into my schedule at all!  However, DH Roger needed a few more shirts, the fabric was there, so now there are 3 new shirts in his closet...

ALL OF THESE SHIRTS ARE OF MY ORIGINAL DESIGN, 
THE PATTERNS DRAFTED BY HAND.

Shirt #1 is made from Plaid Cotton Shirting fabric, and features bias details and a "Cigar Pocket".
Shirt #2 is made from very average quality Cotton Oxford Cloth fabric, in a traditional design.
Shirt #3 is made from Cotton Chambray fabric, and features a right front "Prince" seam, and a buttoned "Cigar Pocket"

Sewing notes-- Fabrics from my shirt-making stash, PRO-WOVEN Fusible INTERFACING and BUTTONS from FASHION SEWING SUPPLY.

I recently had a question via my Facebook page asking about shirt patterns that I would recommend.
These are the pattern companies with good mens shirt patterns, in my opinion. I've tried them all in the past, and have gotten good results. Not as good as a custom draft, but compared to most commercial mens shirt patterns, the menswear patterns from these companies are quite good..again, in my opinion--
The styles and design features vary, but all the patterns are well drafted and each company provides good instructions.
