My first Burda Style project – With no knowledge of ‘serge’ or overlock machines, plus no ribbing I made this t-shirt over a determined weekend.
Used the Pete pattern which is great – it’s easy to follow and adapt.
I finished the edging with a double needle, so if like me, you are starting out, you don’t need anything but scissors, thread, needles material and to borrow a sewing machine.
I used a jersey material, cut the pattern to a size medium and removed quite a lot of the bottom edge as it was rather long.
It's time to enter for our grand prize, an EX100 machine PLUS a trip to Nashville!
