Ready to take your stitches up a notch? Learn to sew a classic camp shirt, a breezy short-sleeved button-up that's perfect for warmer weather. Expert sewist Peter Lappin shows you how, step by step.
Learn all about the style known as the camp shirt, then learn about fabric and pattern choices (including vintage patterns), and tips for matching prints at the center front, a sign of a well-made shirt!
You're ready to sew! Start your shirt by interfacing and finishing the edges of the front facings. Then form and stitch pleats for easy wearing in the back, and construct the pocket to attach later.
Next, see how to quickly attach the yokes to the back and front of your shirt using the popular burrito method. Add an optional button loop at the neck for a convertible collar that you can wear open or closed.
