Normal service resuming in 3…2…1…
The Requested Nerdy Husband Sewing: Rugby Jersey is done!
And I am happy to announce that NH is most pleased with it.
Inside out detail:
You’ll have to believe me when I say it looks 100 times better on my actual husband, rather than Scarlett!
Stripe matching? Check!
I reinforced the shoulder seams with twill tape to prevent any stretching.
And here is the magnificent button placket…which wasn’t actually that difficult in the end. I just needed instructions!
You may notice the lack of rubber buttons because I haven’t sourced them yet, although I think I know a store that may have something but it was closed when I last drove past it…NH is happy with standard plastic buttons for now. The jersey will have it’s first official outing for New Year’s Lunch…which will actually be the 6th, a minor detail.
Pattern: Burda Magazine 04/2007 #130 “Men’s t-shirt” heavily altered to match existing All Blacks polo shirt
