Gray Wool Flannel Shirt

 Fall has definitely hit our area.  It has been in the sixties the last few days.  With this in mind I decided to make a wool shirt with fabric from my stash.  I used Simplicity 8427 in size 40, with two inches added to the sleeve length.

I used my new to me Singer 403 I bought at the thrift store for $3.99. What a bargain!

I used my Singer Professional Buttonholer.  It needs a zigzag machine, so my 403 worked perfectly with the width set at two.

I flat-felled the seams.  This takes a lot longer than serging them, but makes for a nice inside finish.

I have worn this shirt several times and I like it, it is warm.

Thanks for stopping.
