I recently bought a lock machine and this is my first successful project with thin jersey. I tried previously with my regular machine but … NO: waving seams, terrible finish. But now, HA!
The pattern comes from Burda WoF 7/2007 #124. The bust line turned out to be somewhat high for me, I have to do the Star Trek-pull (did you notice that Captain Picard has to pull down his shirt every time he stands up) with this one or I have to put it inside the jeans. I’ll adjust next time for the slight missfit and share the outcome.
For you who aren’t that much into Star Trek: they come in many flavours since the first big hit with “The original Series” from 1966. A more recent one is “ST – The Next Generation” (1987) with Captain Picard as commander of the star ship Enterprise. Usually the crew members will wear knit-jumpsuits but for some reason they changed costumes to 2-piece (shirt&pants) from Season 3 (if I remember it right). This leads to the crew having to pull their shirts whenever they stand up from sitting so that it still looks nice on their belly when standing. Of course you will notice those things when you have seen the series far too many times!
my new fantastic sewing machine, Burda WoF and my husband’s patience to listen to all blabla about fabrics, patterns, and so on.
