Panel Denim Shirt

The pattern for the panels is for a size large denim shirt. If you applique a larger shirt, you will have to add a little more all the way around the pattern.

First, pin the panels on both sides of the front of the shirt by turning under on all sides of the panel so you don't have any raw edges. Sew down with a loose zig zag stitch all the way around.

Then with scraps of material to match the panels, you can add the hearts and stars. Iron Wonder Under to the scraps of material. Follow the manufacturer's directions for ironing on the Wonder Under. With the panel material, you will make the collar and strip on the cuffs so you will have to iron the Wonder Under on that left over material too.

After you have the Wonder Under on the panel material, cut two strips 17 1/2" long by 1 1/4" wide. One strip will be for the collar and the other strip will go around the cuffs.

Trace the hearts and stars on the scraps of material that has the Wonder Under on. Then cut all pieces and pull the Wonder Under paper backing off. Position
each piece on the panels you had sewed on with right side up. Iron on pattern pieces on the panel as directed by Wonder Under.

Sew the pattern pieces on with a medium tight zig zag.

This is a little harder to make and takes more time but it is well worth it.
Happy Sewing !!!!!!!!!
