Ripping and rolling for Make and Mend 2012


 I love this shirt. Too long, too much pattern buried under the waistband, and the collar is a disaster
Cut apart and laid out again

Quarter inch of seam allowance to start. Ish.
 I removed the front, undid most of the sleeves, lost what little seam allowance it had, and shoved the front up.

I stole the back excess hem to make a strip to cover and reinforce the back neck seam. There was a scant quarter inch seam allowance to begin with, so keeping it to size is a challenge. But I will win!
