Now that they have been delivered....I can tell you The Story of the Sweatshirts!!!
Sew, chaotically.....I had this idea!!! Sweatshirts for the sisterhood!! For Christmas! Never mind that I had never made one. Never mind that for two of them I was going to go against the grain!!! Here. We. GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|Pattern attained. Love Grainline everything I have ever made (Morris Blazer and Alder shirt dress 1 and 2 ) Great reviews from other sewists. It will be awesome!!!|
|Bright knits for Kik. Using the literal last bits of that red ponte that made the Red Morris Blazer and the Rosie Red Party Dress!! It went together most excellently!!! B thinks it is fab. Created little side vents with the bottom band! Totally psyched!!!|
|Did review my Colette book on working with knits as well as this great video by Margaret from Sewing Machine Warehouse in Australia: How to make a T-shirt I think she is just awesome!! I love her tutorial on Serging curves and corners as well!!!|
|Hey!! That turned out pretty well!!! Got tons of compliments on wearing it. Folks who know I sew many of my clothes thought I bought it! I'll take that as a good sign! To make the side slit hem, this tutorial was great: How to create a side seam slit By: Sewmamasew.com|
|She got an 'un-pieced back' and I used the 'right' side of the silk because it seemed to match the burgundy knit better.|
|Proud of my hem and bravery in using contrasting thread for top stitching!!!|
|Is it just me, or do they look a little confused?|
|Yes, I re-purpose boxes! I think they liked them! Hope so. Anyhow, it was a really fun project. I have plans for more Linden Sweatshirts for me! Knit...ALL knit...this time!!!|
