Sewing my first polo shirt

September 18, 2017

I’ve made a handful of t-shirts now so I decided to up the challange and make a polo shirt, a.k.a a t-shirt with a collar.

I started by taking apart one I’d bought from my local thrift store to see how it’s made, copied the pattern and then put together a new one. I used a cheap muslin to make this demo shirt and took the stretchy collar material off of the original shirt.

The goal wasn’t so much to make a shirt I could wear but to simply make one to get a feel for what’s involved.
