Add Stylish Details to a Shirt

Threads magazine - 175 - Oct./Nov. 2014 Issue
Article Image
This article from Threads #175 (October/November 2014) by Threads Executive Editor Judith Neukam explains how to add several stylish details to a shirt. Judith writes: I’ve fallen in love with the shirt. I adore the smart look of it, whether it’s soft or crisp or patterned or plain. I’m eager to see fine shaping and creative closures. A shirt is the perfect setting for various choice details, and you’ll see a collection of them in this article. From the beginning, plan your finishing features. Carefully select the fabrics you’ll use, with thought to the sewing details you want to add. Consider a contrasting collar and cuffs; add hidden touches; combine textures; or mix dressy and casual fabrics. Make decisions about the nature of your topstitching, button possibilities, and even closure options. Then enjoy the compliments every time you wear the shirt.

    I really dislike the "We recommend" advertisements, which interrupt the content that I am paying for from Threads.
    Come on people, enough already!

    Kenneth, that is a great article on "surgeons cuffs", (I did know the origin of the word already),and I have a question. How does your method improve on the "extra length and width, mitered hem fold, traditional cuff?
    Just wondered, as shortening men's jacket sleeves is the bane of my existence as a tailoring specialist, trying to get everything lined back up again.
    Thanks for all the great articles in Threads, one more reason my subscription always gets renewed!

    I tried downloading it 3 times. It said there was an error with the file. I have downloaded 2 pdfs this morning with already with no problems. The ext to the file was .pdf but it was only 30kb big. That seemed pretty small to me.
    I'm pretty tech savvy but I will take any help I can get.
