Gingham shirt

February 19, 2011

I saw this little shirt on the cover of Ottobre 1/2010 and thought it was a 'must have' for Isabella's wardrobe. It took me a while to get around to making it but here it is...

I love the detail around the neckline and the sweet rounded collar. It took a while to make but was worth it.  There is gathering around yolk (front and back) and sleeves. Fabric is cut on the bias for button frill and sleeves are gathered in with elastic around arms.  I think it would look really sweet in a small spot too.

Fabric -  100 % cotton navy gingham from Spotlight (almost like a seersucker - nice and soft);
Pattern -  Ottobre 1/2010 (cover pattern);
Bits and bobs - 5 x 10mm buttons; iron on interfacing for collar; thin elastic for sleeves.

  4. Come la scorsa stagione, il nuovo maglia di Roma combina una base rosso con accenti in una tonalità più scura del colore. Ma mentre il suo predecessore dispone di maniche scure, la camicia casa Roma 2016-17 è dotato di un modello di strisce in rosso scuro sulla parte anteriore, mentre il colore è utilizzato anche per il rivestimento intorno al collo.maglie calcio poco prezzo,
