Summer shirts

 While shopping at the thrift store I found some lightweight shirt material for $1.  I thought a while, then decided to make a short-sleeve shirt in medium with McCall's 4079.

I used my Bettina 717 to sew my shirt.

I used lightweight interfacing in the button plackets, the collar and stand, and in the top of the pocket.

I decided to serge the seams with my Brother 534.

I used my White 571 and Singer professional buttonholer for the button holes.

Here it is:

Then I made one with the same pattern and my Singer 7470.  I also serged the seams with my Brother 534.

Here it is:

I have worn both several times and like them a lot.

Thanks for stopping.
