Whether your look is casual or classic, you probably already have a few shirts in your wardrobe. This timeless piece of clothing has been worn for centuries and is easily redesigned according to the latest trends. Today I’m proposing a sewalong so you can make your own shirt using the pattern #T005. I enjoyed designing this shirt and I hope it minimal and loose shape will please you. You can get the pattern here.
This sewalong will guide you through the making of a shirt, including the collar with a stand, a cuff with continuous placket and flat felled seams for a clean finish. This type of seam is fairly easy to make and they do not need to be edge-finished since the raw edges will be concealed.
This pattern was tested by talented sewist and I’m glad to showcase their work here. I will also leave some links so you can discover their other sewing projects.

Made of chiffon. Note that the flat felled seams will be more difficult to do in such kind of fabric. Isabelle also added snaps on the pockets.
