Operator


♫ ♪ Tres - Operator


Currently I’m into shirt making.. I delayed bringing my ideas come to life for some time, and now I can’t stop.. I looked through shirt patterns in recent Burda magazines trying to find basic patterns which would be easy to adjust to two of my favorite techniques in fabric manipulation – pin  tucks and scallops.. Pattern #110 from Burda 07/2012 cought my eye.. Simple shirt with classic collar and ¾ sleeves.. To be honest, I wanted my first make with this pattern to be from this fabric.. That changed while I was tracing pattern pieces on paper.. While I was doing that, I remembered that I had a few large leftover pieces of blue lightweight cotton fabric.. Perfect opportunity to try to make a shirt with pin tucks and at the same time try this shirt pattern.. 



Yoke parts of the shirt were perfect for making horizontal pin tucks.. I had a lot of practice with sewing this kind of straight lines last summer, and it was nice to do it again.. Cotton fabric which I used is very friendly with this technique.. Everything ends up neatly.. I didn’t make any other changes to the pattern.. It’s needless to say I love the outcome..
