10 White Shirts project.....Shirt #2 Complete!

Ok, so it's not white, but everyone needs black shirts too!

First, the collar.

Then the sleeves.

Then put it all together.

Trying to get a picture of the back where I could focus on anything other than my back rolls was depressing.  Where did they come from?

Two down.... now, I need to find some white fabric for at least some of my shirts!

My second white shirt....

Is ....  BLACK.  But I haven't any black interfacing, so it will sit all cut out, waiting patiently.

Guess what I am learning how to do???

KNIT!  As soon as I can uncramp my hands, I may post a pic or two.

Sewing 10 White Shirts?

Sounds crazy to me.  I keep bumping into this idea on blogs I visit.  I think it started by Barbara at  I have never been able to sew a button up shirt that I will actually wear.  The fit is always wrong and I don't know how to go about fixing it.

Yet this intrigued me..... I have had a shirt in my closet that I have outgrown... that has shrunk.  But I like the style, and when it fit, I thought it looked good.  It was RTW....   So.. I disected it.  Changed a few things and traced out my own pattern.   This was my test run, but I think I might actually wear this one!  I wish I had made the sleeves and inch or two longer, as the cuff hits right at my elbow, but next time. 

So... I guess that means.  1 down.... 9 to go.  (-:  Thank you for the inspriration Barbara!
