1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Retro Bowling Shirt (Altered McCall's 4399) on: January 04, 2009 04:14:14 PM
What a coincidence!! I actually had a piece of fabric that ended up not being big enough for the exact pattern you bought and changed for your bowling shirt. So I needed to find a pattern that was pieced so I could add a contrast color and make the shirt for my husband. He liked Burda's pattern #7811 see link: http://www.sewingpatterns.com/subpage.php?brand=Burda and made it a little longer. I also lengthened the sleeves a bit because they seem pretty short in the picture. It looked just like a retro bowling shirt when finished. My son loved it, so my teenage son now has two shirts in his closet from this pattern as well.  Cheesy Burda patterns are really nice. Yours turned out great by the way, I still have that pattern that you altered as well. I might have to play with it too.
