Just a quick one! The Grainline Archer shirt is hemmed by turning over two quarter inch folds and stitching. My plaid is a relatively thick fabric and around the button band, this was becoming bulky. So I took some scissors and trimmed away some of that bulk in the shallow section of the first fold. I was careful to stay away from the finished edge of my button band – I didn’t want raw edges poking out.
My sewing teacher, Beth, says that the quality of a finished item lies in the innards – how you’ve graded seams, trimmed, fused – all the stuff you can’t see. Except you can see it, in how well a collar sits or a button band is hemmed.
We’re magicians, casting invisible spells. Wands to the ready!
