After looking at many different show jackets and shirts, I’ve come to the conclusion “princess seams” are a must for a better fit and more professional look to a show out fit. If you don’t know, the are seams that run from just under your bust to the hem of shirt. The help make your waist look trimmer (something I definitely need). I’ve been doing some internet searching and found a great step-by-step guide to adding princess seams to a pre-made shirt. It can be found here: Use-Princess-Seams-to-Take-in-Your-Clothing. It also lists all the supplies you’ll need. I think it could be a great way to make a show shirt look more custom. If you’re terrified of sewing you could probably find a local tailor to add the seams for you. I’m not sure how expensive it would be but it’s worth checking out!
I hope everybody is out enjoying the sunshine!
