For the record, I’m getting the fabric withdrawal shakes. But, in 2.5 weeks I will be in sunny and warm Los Angeles eyebrow deep in fabric.
What I really liked about this shirt is the solid cuff with print fabric. As you can imagine, this was flat as paper when I constructed it. Normally, a cuff would button, but on this style it’s left open to show off the second cuff.
Using my seam roll and some spray starch, I was able to press some shape into it so it will curve nicely around my wrist when completed.
The day they make a chocolate brown brace to match my skin is the day I will do a little dance in front of the medical supply store.
So, for this shirt, I added an extra inch to the width of the wrist so the shirt can cover the brace and make it a little less noticeable. Also, I can slip the shirt on and off far easier while wearing the brace.
I think my next post will be about my fabric shopping list for LA. I’m including most of your ideas for a red, white and blue SWAP. For someone who likes clothes as much as I do, it’s remarkable how I can’t plan a wardrobe to save my life.
