My husband Bob and I had a booth at our local Home Show over the last weekend to promote his Home Inspection business. Rather than wear the regular woven work shirts, which would be subject to wrinkles, I decided to make knit shirts for the two of us.
The trouble was, the pattern pieces generated by PatternMaster were a bit confusing.
Creative Machine List on Yahoo (Full disclosure: I am the owner of the list). Within a few minutes, I had my answer: this is called a "shirt neckline placket". And a member was kind enough to scan some instructions so I could complete my project.
Here we are at the show (apologies for the fuzzy picture...):
And, of course, the company logo had to be featured on the shirts. I digitized the logo with Embird Studio (love that program!) and stitched them on the knit with my Designer 1 (now that I raised it on a platform, I'm doing a lot more embroidery!).
Next up on the sewing agenda is a new sundress for Diana, using the same pattern as for this Anthropologie knock-off.
