I finally finished my grandson’s “Monkey” shirt on February 21, 2015. I had a few days before I could deliver it to him. He wore it for the first time on February 24. I just didn’t get around to posting it until now.
I really liked it when the Monkey Shirt after I finished it despite my mistakes. I had a lot of sewing techniques to “relearn.” I hadn’t done those things since I made my 35 year old son a little suit for a wedding. I had to relearn . . .
✔︎ How to sew collar bands and collars
✔︎ How to sew machine buttonholes
✔︎ How to sew on buttons. Can you believe I haven’t sewed a button on anything for a long time!
✔︎ How to set in sleeves
✔︎ And most of all PATIENCE!!
