First Project With Singer 327

I decided to start out with a pattern I was familiar with for the first project using my Singer 327.  If you haven't guessed yet, it is my Simplicity 7330 shirt pattern I like.

This is a shirt for Joe.  He put on a little weight because of some new medication.  I am making this shirt in a large, using a bed sheet.  It has short sleeves and a collar stand.

Shirt in Progress

I made the pocket with a cardboard pattern I folded the material around, then ironed to fit.  Made for real  crisp edges.

Sleeves next.

Thanks for stopping.


  1. What is it you like about Simplicity 7330?

    1. It can be made with a notched collar or with a collar stand. The instructions are easy to follow. There are a minimum of pieces to sew together. I like the style and it fits me well.

    2. I forgot to say there is no hand stitching, everything is machine sewn.

    3. It sounds like ease of construction is the most important factor, but only if you like the style and it fits well.

  2. Using a template for making crisp accurate pockets is a great idea!!
