I’ve been wanting to try this pattern for a while but my antique sewing machine didn’t like knits. I recently bought a serger and gave it a go. Love the serger and the finished top. I could make a bunch of these and have fun with the necklines. Only had 1 metre of fabric so had to serge some pieces together for one of the sleeves but I like that look. Neckline, hem, sleeves finished by serging. It went together really quickly.
A piece of fabric I bought over a year ago that my daughter has been using for her blankie. Recently traded her another piece of fabric for it and finally got to make the shirt.

The Workroom on Queen St West in Toronto – www.theworkroom.ca – for the excellent serging class last year. I wouldn’t have had a clue how to use it if I hadn’t taken a class.
