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.
