Star Wars

I LOVE the fabrics from

This is one of a few fabrics I bought at Supanova and
the Stitches and Craft show recently. 
The shirt (for my son) was inspired by one on display at Supanova.

The pattern is Burda 9524.
I widened the shoulders, and added about 10cm to the length.
I also reduced the seam allowances to 6mm as I had just made
a Kwik Sew shirt and found them much easier to work with
especially around the collar and stand. Try it sometime.

I used 1m of each fabric. The collar and pocket are
fussy cut to show off the print.

I love using Steam a Seam - to position the pocket
so it won't move while sewing around it, and also
on the front hems (because they are narrow and edge to edge).
If the collar gave me any grief, I was planning 
on using it there too, but didn't need to.
Very pleased with the results.
