Amazing job! Whenever I make a shirt with collar stand, I use Margaret Islander's no-pins directions. I borrowed the video from my library over and over.

Very smart looking shirt and you are very smart also taking a pattern from an old shirt.

Lovely work on this shirt - your husband is a lucky man! I use Shirt Crisp interfacing too from Pam - LOVE!!!

Thank you for the kind and encouraging comments. My husband and I have enjoyed all of them so very much. The monograms are sewn on a Pfaff 2144 sewing/embroidery machine from a font in 3D software that the machine uses - not a built-in alphabet in the machine. I'm sorry I don't remember which font it is, just a script that I liked. The interfacing I use is Pro-Woven Shirt Crisp fusible interfacing from Pam Erny at I like it the best of any I've ever used. Hope that helps!

Every detail is perfect! I'm also interested in what machine you used to sew the monogram and any words on what kind of interfacing(s) you used.
