Long-sleeve poly-cotton dress shirts. In the collection of Dave Loffredo.

Continuing to refine my technique for dress shirts and working with poly-cotton. In particular, since the fabric is so light, the temperature of the iron is very important when fusing the interfacing. I had been using too high a temperature resulting in rippled interfacing, but finally got a handle on that with these shirts.

The sleeve length is good, but I have been much more precise with seam allowances since moving to the serger and think I need to expand the pattern slightly to give a bit more room in the shoulders.
