A New Year and a New Shirt

Back on Super Friday in November Joann's had a Super Sale on flannel shirting. Of course I couldn't pass on it.  I bought some cranberry and some blue flannel.

I decided on Simplicity 2741 in small with two inches added to the sleeve length.

This pattern has a good fit on me.  Two things are different with this pattern.  The yoke is about half  the size of a traditional yoke.  This makes it a little difficult sewing the burrito method.  I really have to roll the material tightly to get the yoke around it.  The second is the continuous-lap  sleeve placket.  But this is an easy fix, I simply use a tower packet from a different pattern.

I picked the cranberry since I don't have any shirts this color.

 I decided to use my Bernina 910.

The material had a little stretch to it, so I interfaced both pieces of the collar and stand to make sewing easier.

Thanks for stopping.
