Turning a Shirt Collar – Have You Ever? Your Mom? Grandma?
Have YOU ever ‘turned a shirt collar’? Seen your Mom or Grandma do that? Most likely quite a foreign concept to the young moms of today……..
Well – my hubby irons his own shirts these days (retired, and I did it for YEARS!) and he lamented when he saw this on one of his fav shirts. “Could you fix it?” he asked. That question (to which I rolled my eyes, and said, NO!), reminded me of that long-lost skill.
HOWEVER, in search of some quick Blog Posts these days (read why below), I thought I’d do a quick online search for the How-To’s, in case you’re sew inspired to do this yourself………
This one intrigued me – though not actually turning, but creatively covering. The ‘total collar cover’ technique would work here, but in all sincerity, I doubt my hubby would appreciate a floral ‘fix’ and I wonder how bulky it would be…..
Looking further (on YouTube, of course), I found this sweet woman who has the same ‘covering’ concept, but I was totally impressed. Enjoy…
SEW…Where have I been? Why No Blog Posts lately?
I’m SUPER SUPER Busy preparing to tape some It’s Sew Easy Episodes AND producing a NEW pattern pamphlet on transforming patterns and garments into TUNICS. This pamphlet will be available in early March, and will be entitled: TRENDY TUNIC TOPS. Stay Tuned…..
