Knit Shirt; Christine Jonson Pattern #723 - Straight Shirt

On a sewing roll, using up fabric from my stash. The pattern, Christine Jonson #723, Straight Shirt, sewn up in a soft knit fabric. I thought this was a ponte knit, but it's more like a soft French Terry. The color is Champagne Pink, closer to a very pale shade of peach. I did not like working with this fabric; too soft, too fluid. The use of iron-on, double-sided fusible webbing which I applied on the hem and sleeve hems helped to give body to the garment, enough to prevent edges from stretching out of shape.. Also applying top-stitching to the collar and front along the edges gave the shirt a better finished appearance. This is a comfortable, wearable shirt, but I am glad this one is done.
