Cheyenne shirt view A #2
Made two more Cheyenne shirts for the Sewcialists TNT challenge, this one is a new take on the classic view A with a few more fitting adjustments: I raised the shoulders a bit at the front, resolving the wrinkle problem I allways have at the front shoulder, and made the corresponding adjustment to the collar and stand. I mantained the adjustments I already had made on my blue version – sway back, reduced center back yoke, and shortened sleeve. For this version I redesigned the sleeve placket to make it thinner and longer, using the measurements from a RTW shirt. I think it does look more elegant, unfortunately my placket pictures all came out too blurry for posting. This fabric is a nightmare to focus.
The fabric I used is a cotton gauze from the remnant bin at the local fabric shop, a true nightmare to sew. The weave is way too lose and the fabric distorts a lot, I had to re-align the hem at the end, and I’m not sure I was successful.
