When I wrote this post I knew my goal of sewing 10 polo shirts before the start of school on August 30th was more than a little ambitious.
And, so, here it is, September 21, and all 10 are finished at last. Without a whole bunch of help from Nana (think her 60% to my 40%) it would have been longer.
We rocked the Stretch & Sew #1750 (thank goodness for keeping old patterns, as there were absolutely no current polo shirt patterns to be found). The placket/tab was an absolute beast for me the first couple of times I sewed it, but Nana’s got skills—the shirts she sewed look marvelous. In my “spare” time I hope to figure out a less bulky, less difficult way to construct the placket, as we’re not done with our current school dress code for a few more years.
I really enjoyed sewing the knit fabrics (hadn’t done that in awhile), but for now I’m going to keep experimenting with things that don’t have tabs and front facings.
