Another shirt. I am having fun building a bit of a better wardrobe. As money has been tight and I have felt chubby, clothes have been pretty low on the list. But a recent small weight loss (8 pounds so far), and encouragement and inspiration from blogs for sewing clothing have given me a bit of a reason to try a few things. I had some fabric and some patterns on hand, so here we go.
Joanne suggested using a double needle for the hems in knits and, wow, it worked. Thanks Joanne.
This is modified from the same pattern as the last one, Simplicity 4076.
I still have fitting issues, but, just like quilting, you don’t learn by thinking about it. Sometimes you have to haul out scissors, needle and thread and take your chances.
