In my clothing production course, one day was put aside to learn how to make a basic stretch t-shirt. for this we used all the industrial machines, like the cover stitch, stretch overlocker, binding and elastic casing machines.
I managed to score some sweet mustard coloured stretch knit fabric from my teacher (which i dont think anyone else thought was such a sweet score!!) and used that.
A couple weeks later i may (or may not) have spilt hair dye on my beautiful mustard tee…
So then the only thing i could do to fix it was attack it with all the lace i had lying around.
Anywho i like how it turned out regardless!
Thanks for listening :)
p.s. my bad – its not sitting very well in these pics….but what you going to do ;-)
