Lekala 4456 shirt sewing

Lekala 4456 shirt sewing

Hi!

Today I’ll show you my Lekala 4456 shirt sewing project, which began before my silk dress project, but you know, when I bought the silk I couldn’t resist to finish that first! Although I was almost finished with the shirt by that time, but I completed it shortly after the dress.

And I have to admit, I’m not paid at all for advertising Lekala, no affiliate links, nothing – just my humble opinion.

I used the Lekala 4456 pattern, this one:

I used 1 meter fabric, a cotton poplin fabric – ecru coloured one. Turns out, it qutie stiff in the hot summer days, it’s definitely a no-no when it’s above 25 Celsius degree.

For the international readers I strongly recommend the Archer Sew-Along by Grainline, it’s a great tutorial on how to sew a shirt.

About the process:

  • I made the darts on the back, the little flaps were also made seperately.
  • I sewed together flaps and yoke part, also the back yoke and back and then the front and back together.
  • I sewed the collar and neck edge – which is very tricky, especially when you attach the neck edge to the shirt
  • sleeves
  • hemming

What I made differently, that is I finally topstitched the collar which gave a more professional look and stability to the collar.

I really like this shirt, I think it has a better fit than the previous shirt I made. I kinda miss one more button between the bust points so I guess I have to do that to achive the most comfort fit!

Do you have  favourite shirt pattern? Are you on the loose or the fitted side?
