A short post, from my mobile, as I’m packing for an extended trip. Still, I found time to make a t-shirt with an interesting back. (Terrible shadows in the photos!)
This tee is very easy-it took no time at all. I used my straight stitch machine and serged seams. Instead of narrow hems, I serged the edges without trimming, folded over the hem allowances and top stitched 3/8 inch from ghe edge (7/8 on the sleeves).
My only quibble with the construction is that you hem the bottom of the front and back before sewing the side seams. I don’t really care for the way that finishes the side seams. I had to tack them down by hand.
I sewed a 12, view B, no alterations. This is closer fitting than I expected even in the arms (I have skinny arms). It has no shaping at the bust or waist, so consider a muslin first. It’s cute, but a little fussy. Those back panels don’t like to stay just so.
The fabric is an organic cotton jersey from Marcy Tilton purchased last summer. Mid-weight and no rolling, it’s long sold out. I love that she is thorough in her descriptions of the knits, including the rolling.
I am not sure how often I will wear this, and I won’t make this version again, but I am considering the version with the keyhole back.
No time for live shots, and you can see my final pressing still needs to be done.
