Dark grey and black aren't accurate colours for 18th century shirts, but it's just for everyday wear, so that's not so important.
I won't bore you with the construction details, as they are much the same as all my other shirts. It's mostly machine sews, with hand finishing on the cuffs, collar, and ruffle hems.
What's more, I had pinned it on and checked, and then taken it off and turned it over because I thought I'd put it on the wrong way. How foolish!
I was awake way too late sewing at the time, so I blame it on lack of sleep.
|Doing hem gussets by machine is a bit fiddly|
but I think this one looks good.
|Underarm gusset with the seams all nicely finished.|
monster waistcoat, what with it being equally inaccurate.
I still have a lot of this linen left, and I don't really want to make more shirts out of it, so perhaps I'l do a nightgown or two.
HSM challenges, but I'm sure to finish the November one since it's a small and simple item!
