50 Steps to Make a Great Shirt
Years ago, I learned the hard way, it takes lots of work to make a shirt. I personally invested 4 months, 12 sewing classes, a lot of supplies tallying up to $200+ dollars to make my own Aloha Shirt. It was very confusing, a bit frustrating, yet very satisfying to complete, but for sure did not save me any money. With the classes, supplies, fancy scissors, and time, that shirt would have retailed for $580 or more!
In this video, Swedish label ASKET shows us all how to make an Oxford shirt in 50 steps. You’ll be amazed by all of the intricacies that go into making such a standard shirt. Me, I already know what it’s like to make my own shirt. If I saw this video prior to my project, I doubt I would have tried it.
Pretty cool video. Whether you want to DIY or just see how it’s all done. This is a pretty awesome story from start to finish on making an Oxford shirt. Thank You to ASKET for letting us in on the process.
Asket uses 2.2 square meters of fabric, 97 meters of thread, 14 buttons, 43 pieces, and close to 50 people to complete the Oxford shirt. And it comes in 15 various sizes to make the project even more complex. Think about all that next time you put on your favorite Long Sleeve button down Shirt. Wow!
You can get your very own ASKET Oxford Shirt here for about $79. See you on the Streetz!
