I used Sew-Knit-N-Stretch #309 for the pattern and some material from my stash. I have made this pattern before, but it has been two years. I decided to use my serger after I read I could serge stretch-knits. I am not sure if this material is lycra. This worked out great. It made a beautiful edge and a nice t-shirt.
I looked at my old blog pages to see what size I made for Joe last time. Good thing I have this blog for my sewing-diary. I actually made him an extra-large and noted how small the pattern runs. Since he usually wears a medium or large depending on the pattern.
After serging, I sewed the edges with a flexi-stitch using my sewing machine to reinforce the seams. The seams look professional.
I used a twin needle for the hem. It gives it a nice touch.
|So many things to see|
I purchased a huge quantity of material that would be perfect for shirts, lounge wear, and boxer-shorts at the thrift store yesterday. It has an Egyptian theme. Pillars, pyramids, and Sphinxs. Fourteen yards by fifty-eight inches of a light weight broadcloth for $1.50 is the best deal ever.
I wonder if a shirt of this material would go well with my Vogue jacket? I have many ideas for projects, but the first project will be a McCalls 6613 shirt.
Thanks for stopping.
