It’s the first day of school! I finished this Philadelphia shirt in time to wear today.
Fabric: city pride cotton from Joann
Pattern: Mc Calls 7360
I changed the neckline to a plain v.
Layout was the fun part, as usual.
Notes on the front: I didn’t want big letters right across my bust, and there was also a weirdness with those round trees that had to be avoided. As I moved the pattern up and down I saw that I could, seredipitously, have PA (abbreviation for Pennsylvania, for my non-US friends) on the two sides of the neckine.
Each sleeve has PHILADELPHIA at the hem.
Notes on the back: I centered PHILADELPHIA on the back yoke, and then I didn’t want it repeated too close together, further down the back. Understand that the placement of the PHILADELPHIA on the back is dictated by its placement on the front, so I was going back and forth, back and forth, working out the best placement front and back.
At the side seams the words match right across.
