New Look 6963 Gingham Shirt
My favourite shirt pattern is New Look 6963. I've made 3 long shirts with sleeves. I wanted to make a sleeveless version and a shorter length with some red gingham for a nice cool summer shirt. The gingham was from Spotlight and was $16 for 1.8m x 112cm. I have a bit of fabric left over. This was made using view A for the sleeveless version, but C for the length. You can just see a glimpse here that the armholes are faced with red bias binding.
For the first time I tried pattern matching. It worked! Side seams, stripes continue across body
The top yoke is nearly invisible as the stripes running down match
Even the collar and yoke match.
I love this and with temperatures in the mid-20's I'll be wearing this a lot over summer.
