Tiffany flip, how could I resist linen called Tiffany flip
How could anyone? This linen is from Tessuti and has been in my stash for a while. So yay! stashbusting!
This shirt is based on the Grainline Archer with:
- no pockets
- princess seams
- a taller sleeve head
- collar using Andrea and Tasia’s tutorials (links in my previous button -up shirt post)
- sleeve plackets from the Colette Negroni shirt
- flat felled and French seams.
On the inside yoke I used a small piece of Liberty left over from some baby clothes.
Glass buttons are from Buttons, butttons, buttons at the Rocks in Sydney.
I was considering these Cath Kidston buttons but decided they might be a bit twee. What do you think?
On my quest for the perfectly fitting shirt,
next time I’ll :
- improve the making of the sleeve plackets (eek sleeve plackets! these fine as long as you don’t look too closely).
- move the front princess seams further to the sides.
- not take the sides in as much as I did and avoid the slight gape
- use the back princess seams rather than the side seams for more shaping.
Anyone else on the quest for the perfect fit shirt?
