I love the new shirt in my closet, its summerly and pink or maybe coral is more accurate. It’s the new Naomi from Coffee + Thread.
I have never sewn a shirt with this type of sleeve and I love learning a new trick or two while I sew. It’s a puffy raglan sleeve with a shoulder dart and it gives the shirt very unique and lovely lines.
There’s an option for both long and short sleeves and the size range is 0-22. The fabric I used is tencel twill that I bought from Imagine Gnats. Sadly she has now closed her shop.
Other than the sleeve construction it sews like a regular button-up shirt with cuffs and a collar with a collar stand. Sewing shirts is not the fastest sewing project with all the interfacing and ironing and fiddling with getting nice and sharp corners on the collar and the cuffs. But because of those elements it’s so rewarding when you complete your project and put the shirt on and it looks amazing.
I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes!
Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment!
