OK as a disclaimer here are new things I did with this shirt:
- Raglan Sleeves
- ITY knit
- Wrap front anything
So Simplicity 2369 is highly rated, and it should be, this is the best fitting knit experience I have ever had. Here is what happened...
I put in the raglan sleeves, checked the pattern and put the neck facing. However, I was so excited I had done raglan sleeves that I then went all ego-crazy and decided I could wing it from there.
Facing fail! I serged the facing on, but it kept rolling and exposing my lazy girl serger thread. I had to zig zag it down.
Overall you can't tell. It is a bit low cut, but I wore it to watch football yesterday and no one noticed, of course. I have not hemmed it yet because I am out of white thread...how does that happen? Anyway it is knit and it won't unravel. I did find I liked the raglan sleeves and the bell shaped sleeve. The ITY was a bit stuffy when I was out and about though. Overall it will be worn and loved, but the next one will go better and cover more cleavage.
Next up: an even stuffier fleece sweatshirt from my Craftsy course. I am loving it!
Don't mind my crazy face and hair, I had been tracing my Junipers!
It is very cute on you!! :)ReplyDelete
Very nice indeed - looks good on you. Fun print.ReplyDelete
Thanks I do love the printDelete
AAAH I LOVE IT! But then, I love polka dots. I still have to make up that cardigan with the fabric you sent me. (Someday)ReplyDelete
I really like purple on you! And while it's a bit low cut, it doesn't seem to gape at all so you look covered. Wraps are annoying to get right, but I think you did well here! And I totally can't see your whoops. :D
Oh yeah! That is part of the mini wardrobe right? Thanks!Delete
Eh, let's not talk about the mini wardrobe...Delete
