This is a third–and last–post on making adjustments to the back of a loose shirt. Sometimes, making a pleat on the back is just what a shirt needs to be more fitting. And to enhance your silhouette.  I usually do this work with hand stitching and this is what I have done for this third shirt.

And I also added hand embroidery.

I used hand-quilting thread to make the embroidery (King Tut). And to stitch the pleat. Looking at the picture below, it may appears to have been a mistake. The thread is thicker than regular sewing thread. And shows. So much for an invisible seam… But it shows more in the picture than in real, as it was zoomed. In my defense, I will say that the color of the thread was just the perfect match to the off-white fabric. Really perfect.
