Inspiration for the Sew-Along

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.

An abstract accent.

Today I turned to Susanne to get inspiration for the design of the shirt I’m going to make in the Sew-Along.  Her top choice was to use this fabric for the face of the collar, the neck band, the cuffs, and the placket.  In small pieces, it should have a cool abstract feel.  Then the body of the shirt will be more of a neutral – maybe a gray/silver, black, or ivory?  Since I will make a muslin first, I don’t have to have a firm design yet, but I would like to order the fashion fabric this week.
