The EZ Shirtmaker is an aluminum template with 3 of the most common collar shapes, a shirt tail and a cuff shape. It was also designed in collaboration with Fabrique! Fabrics. They have a fabulous shirt making class that uses this template to mold collars, shirt tails and cuffs. I have even compared the shape of the pointed collar to my husband’s shirt and it is the same. Some of its wonderful features are: composed of aluminum, geometrically exact, uses the most common collars, it loves the heat of the iron, and it never wears out. I recently made a linen blouse using this template and I was pleasantly surprised at how much nicer it was to use than my cardboard templates. After I traced the collar shape for the stitching line, I sewed up the collar. Then, I put the collar shape back into the collar and pressed. The template not only made the collar look professional, it made the fiddly seam allowances on the inside behave. The EZ Shirtmaker retails for $17.65.
A few scratches on the aluminum are a natural part of the manufacturing process.
I do hand sand all of the edges with 220 grit sandpaper.
Aluminum does get hot when used with an iron, so be careful.
All my products are made in the USA.
Always be careful when handling sharp corners on this template!!!
