Vintage Vogue Men's Batik Shirt

Monday, April 25, 2011
(please note--the sleeves are the same length..I took the photo at a slight angle...oops!)

Roger is taking a trip soon because his daughter is graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University...and he needs a few new comfortable shirts.  I think This batik fabric and vintage Vogue Pattern #9366, make a very fashionable match! 


Washable wood buttons from Fashion Sewing Supply finish the casual look of this shirt, as does the Pro-Sheer Elegance Fusible Interfacing that has the perfect hand for this smooth lightweight cotton batik.

In case you are wondering...no...I will not be making him a pair of short-shorts as shown on the pattern envelope, LOL !  Something for which I am sure his daughter will be grateful ;)

However,  I will be writing a tutorial soon about how to professionally handle sleeve cap ease specifically on shirt sleeves after they have been set (sewn)...so stay tuned.
