Do you have casual Fridays? I don’t, but here’s a little piece of casual sewing on Friday anyway! :)
As you can probably tell, these photos were taken on the same day as my bird top. Gotta take advantage of the time and the weather when I have it :)
(don’t mind the pups… poor Finny doesn’t get to win very often)
Fabric: This was another knit from my knit fix way back when :) It’s a really soft, lightweight knit. It was fun to work with, although super slippery and kind of a pain to keep a hold of when I was sewing the neckline.
Pattern: Hey June Union St. Tee. I’m pretty sure the sentiment about this pattern is consistent across the blogsphere – it’s a wonderful pattern! It’s a simple top, but the directions are great. It was my first time with a v-neck, and it turned out a lot easier than I was imagining. The fabric didn’t have a lot of stretch, so I sized up to the medium and I think it worked out perfect for this one. If I had a stretchier material, I may have gone down to the small – which I think I’ll try next time. I got this pattern at the same time as the Sloan Leggings pattern I used for my puppy leggings and I have to say I’m very impressed with her patterns :) Lots of size, printing, and customization options! On that note, I already have fabric picked out for a Union St. Tee Dress :)
I used my serger for most of it and top-stitched with my double needle. It worked out well but what I want to know is how do you choose what width is best when using a double needle? I assume it depends on the fabric you’re using? Hmm… something else to investigate… :)
Overall, I’m very happy with how it turned out. It made it’s debut wear at Disneyland last weekend! We went for the West Coast Pharmacy Exchange conference, but stayed for the rides ;)
Until next time,
