This is a project I finished a month ago (!) and I was hoping to get fun pictures at a Disney location since I'm about an hour away. But life happens, and while I still may get those pictures sometime, I wanted to go ahead and share my shirt now :)
I did have a hard time deciding on the color for the collar and cuffs. When I bought the dwarf fabric I thought I'd use white, but I've made this pattern a few times with white collars and I feel it makes it seem like I own a bunch of the same exact shirt (which I do, but whatever - other people don't need to know that, lol). So I dug in my stash of knit material and pulled out a few other options. Nothing was a dead match to the colors in the main fabric, but this sagey-mint green was pretty close, so I went with that. I really like how it turned out! This green fabric was a thrift store find, and it's really nice actually.
Detail shots! I'm pretty proud of my ditch stitching around the collar. There was a lot of changing of threads going on with this. I used a light blue for some areas since the main fabric has a light blue background, I used a mint green for the collar and cuffs, and I used white woolly nylon thread in the bobbin for the hems. I even took the time to match it up at the collar and used blue in the top and green in the bobbin. It really helped make the stitches invisible. Unfortunately I didn't take my time at the actual collar when attaching it to the body and there is a sizable space where the collar points meet. It bugs me a bit, but realistically I don't think anyone who doesn't sew would notice, especially since they don't meet at the center front. I AM proud of the fact that my shoulder seam actually meets up with the collar shoulder seam though, lol. I think that's the first time that's happened. Also the hems look great. I love a twin needle with woolly nylon in the bobbin!
