French Toast Cloths for Ventriloquist Figures

I believe it was a while ago that I talked about this but I was asked again where I get the nice white dress shirts for my figures and the answer is I use size 4 French Toast brand shirts. These are shirts that are made for schools that have a dress code.

These shirts come in regular and button down collar as well as short sleeve and in the colors white,blue and yellow. You can look them up on line or just Google French Toast cloths. They also make pants and sweaters. I have used them all.

Sometimes the size 4 neck is a bit large but I just make a fold in the rear to take up some fabric and then staple same. It works perfect to adjust the neck. Then you can sew the flap and remove the staple. I also leave in the plastic under the collar and it keeps the collar nice and stiff and in place. You don’t see it once you have a bow tie or long tie on the neck.

    That business about leaving in the plastic. D’oh! Why didn’t I think of that?
