Folded Up Shirt P0rn - Page 282

post #4216 of 4478
This is not really the right thread, but since the shirt experts live here... I was thinking about giving this collar a different (smaller) shape. It's a fused collar. The shirt is an old linen/cotton blend.

The plan is to remove the stitching along the edge of the collar, pull the fusing off (will that work?) reshape the collar (more cutaway with a slight curve) and re-stitch it. Doable? Tips?

not doable that way and not worth the hassle the right way. The collar is first sewn at the edge inside out then turned and the second edge stitching is done at 4-5mm from the edge. You will need to detach the collar from the collar band, remove the second edge stitching, turn it inside out, re-cut the shape, re-stitch and then back again....: buy a new shirt

In the pro-cess as they say.

They don't get to London super frequently and I get away somewhat frequently but Francesca and Mimmo are really cool. Can't wait to see what they come up with.

smile.gif I like recycling (see sig). I'm not sure Mrs NOBD will like the idea, though... Thanks anyway!

If you were to take on that project, had you decided on listening to Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, Sting or Sade?

I think I'd gone with The Essential Leonard Cohen myself ;-)

: ) I think The Police in the demolition stage and Stevie during the rebuild.

Newest batch of Cego shirts.   Vintage buttons on the casual shirts.  Gritti buttons on the G&R button downs.

Did you really want no-roll button-downs?

First Batch...

 

 

 

 

I don't even want to take them out of the plastic...I just want to hug them.

At that price point, I think it's a very nice touch, especially on the first order.
