Not quite a shirt.


I don’t have the time, or the money to make a full shirt for under the jacket and waistcoat. But the collar is a very important part of the costume and it can’t be completely forgotten, so I’m making a false shirt top. This is only the toile, which is the reason for the the oh so lovely floral fabric.


Fairly simple in pattern, but I still haven’t quite got the hang of the construction technique yet. Curves have never been my strong point and this one is really tight. Adding interfacing really helped stiffen it though.
