Fitting the Muslin
This February I’m sewing along with Male Pattern Boldness and a bunch of other talented seamsters. We’re all making men’s shirts. Mine is for my husband, and here’s a reflection on my efforts to sew well.
I am going to brave the experts in the Sew-Along by posting these photos to the Flickr group. They’ve seen all of the previous photos I’ve posted here about the Sew-Along, but none have felt as personal as these.
Other than the length, I feel like the fit is actually pretty good, but I’m curious what those with more experience will see.
MPB commented on the last muslin photo and suggested that the collar was wider than typical modern-day shirts, which makes sense since the pattern I’m using is from the 70s. I haven’t decided whether I’ll redraft the collar using a modern shirt as a guide. The collar on the muslin doesn’t seem to bother my husband, so I might leave it as is for the upcoming linen/silk version of this shirt.
