Thanks for any info offer.
I don't have any suggestions but wish you luck with your project,
The instructions say to hand stitch it. I should've said this from the get-go: the shirt is the McCall's "Classic Fit 3-Hour shirt" with a band collar. I'm toying with the idea of trying to "stitch in the ditch" by machine, but I'm not a terribly experienced sewer, and haven't sewn anything in a heckuva long time. Having said that, I took the work in progress to my office and received lots of oooooos and ahhhhhhs over the quality of the shirt thus far.
That's very cool! It also helps one's confidence to get positive feedback. To stitch in the ditch, do some practice runs on scrap, and slow your machine down so that you are completely in control. Many sewing machines have a built-in speed control that helps with that.
