I do, some really great stuff.
Some great free stuff.
Like this tee
The Elise tee is a sleeveless, slightly caped sleeve, shaped tee.
I really take my time with finishing when I sew knits.
They last longer, look more professional and it makes for a more rewarding sew.
I also was obliged to take quite a bit of time with this tee as my cover stitch was being a pain. When it works, it is awesome, when it works...
I like to top stitch the front neck seam and then cover the back neck seam with my label tape (thin cotton webbing will do too and you can get some very pretty printed ones)
I also top stitched the sleeve cuffs.
The pattern needs to be sewn in a very stretchy knit, think lycra, or something very sheer, like a linen/cotton super fine knit.
The fabric was another bargain from Eliza's of Sunshine $1/m and I wish we had bought more.
The fabric of this t-shirt is absolutely gorgeous. I have always loved the blue tie dyed look and I now have a lovely soft comfortable t-shirt in it. I'm not gonna lie, I will probably have to be forced out of it and it will most likely jump up my list to my favourite yoga top.
I made Zara the small, I have cut myself a large... I will let you know how it goes.
