Sew Chicago’s challenge for the Chicago ASG Chapter fashion show in October is to make a tailored shirt or shirt dress with a collar, cuffs, button placket and at least one embellishment.
We’ve already told you about the presentation Linda made on button plackets in April. For our March program, Steph provided us with a close look at shirt cuffs.
Of course, the starting point is the pattern.
Steph prepared a ton of samples to show us each step of the process.
The finished samples included a traditional cuff, a cuff with a continuous bias placket and some cool variations.
Steph also made a sample of a French cuff and a connected pair of buttons that can be used as a cufflink.
We look forward to seeing great tailored shirts in our chapter’s fall fashion show.
