I have written many times about my "go-to" shirt pattern being Simplicity 7330. This pattern has a choice of a notched collar or a collar with stand. It is like an old friend that I am comfortable with and like having around.
I have written in length about my sewing machines also. I like all machines, but I have found among the smoothest I have are the ones called Bernina. I have tried the new Berninas at the store, but my newest is a 1011 which is 30 years old.
So for my latest projects, I had some comfortable old friends help me. My Simplicity 7330 and my Bernina 1011.
I made the medium size with a blue cotton from JoAnn's. I like a firm collar, so I interfaced both collar pieces.
Then I decided to have another old friend, my Singer 6268, help me to make a shirt with a sheet. One thing I did different this time is use the straight stitch needle plate with the straight stitch foot. This made a real difference in keeping the topstitching straight.
Simplicity 7330 was used, but I inserted darts in the back like Islander #228.
Thanks for stopping.
