McCall's 8027 - Western Style with Embroidery





Inspiration from RTW happens quite often, so my dupe of a RTW shirt is the topic today on the blog.



  The embroidery, the back yoke is my favorite feature.  

 


Here is picture overload on the embroidery, front and back yokes





The front yoke and I used part of the back yoke for the front two yokes.





Here  is the embroidery I created from elements for mySewnet



Many of these elements are from the Super Designs section of the software.  Here is the middle design that I modified, using the Modify tab.  Here is what it looked like before I eliminated the green



My inspiration came from Johnny Was and let's talk about the shirt constructions
photo from the Johnny Was site - shirt was $245 and now is $171


I went with McCall's 8027 a western style shirt with princess seams, great front pockets and a front yoke.


The shirt did not have a back yoke, so I drafted one.  The front yokes I made just a bit bigger to give more impact to the shirt.


I made a size 14, which is in the good shoulders and bust but should have gone to a 12 at waist and hips.  Not a terrible sizing error with a shirt but I would have liked a slimmer fit.


My fabric is from Style Maker Fabrics' the flannel and the 6 oz denim which were perfect for this shirt.


The construction was straight forward and easy to sew.  I did line the yokes to, for a cleaner look and also to keep the embroidery for scratching me.


I do have to say this is one of the best collars and collar stand I have ever done.  I really slowed down on this make and enjoyed each step of the process.





I invested in a KAM press in 2013 when I first grandchild was born, I love it so much.  I took a look at their website and I could get pearl snaps, which was just how this shirt needed to be finished.  I did have to order a couple of attachments, too, but the ease and quickness of the installing the pearl snaps was worth every penny.

I am so pleased with my shirt and the embroidery is just perfect, I spent many hours working on the software to get the look just right.  My time paid off and the end result is so good.  




One last tip, after stitching one yoke, I traced off the shape of the yoke and the outline of the large flower.  Using this as a guide to position my embroidery for the other front yoke.  This helped to get the embroideries in the same area of the front yoke


I am just going to sit here and smile because I love how this turned out!  Also, sitting here because we are going to below zero (Fahrenheit) for nighttime and single digits daytime.  No outside pictures for me for awhile!
