I have changed from store-bought medium shirts to made-by-me small shirts. I now wear small size shirts because I can make them long enough for me. I used to wear medium shirts for the length, but they were too big. I am also trying different colors. I used to wear horizontal stripes to hide my thinness, but now I don't.
I don't know if this is part of getting older, or part of sewing for myself. But it will be interesting to see where it goes.
This shirt is McCall's 6613. I made it before for my "fun shirt" Then I made it a second time, but I messed up the seams and it ended up being too small. I can wear it, but I don't think I will.
|I Look Super-Thin in This Shirt|
I made the shirt with my Viking 190, including the buttonholes. This is a mechanical machine except for the needle up/down setting. I find the automatic up/down needle to be helpful. I used flat-fell seams on the sides, and over-edged the armscyes. I did write Thinmansewing on the pocket with my Memory Craft 6000.
