Description

I immediately and helplessly fell in love with the fabric when I saw it, I couldn’t go home without it, it was screaming at me “Buy me, you have to buy me!”. The pattern is from an old dusty MissB from somewhere in the 90’s, well it actually was a dress but I made a shirt of it since I don’t think I want to expose all that a dress made of jersey would show. Learning moments: nice hem with knitted fabrics.

Material Notes

Fine viscose-lycra jersey in grey/silver/black retro print, 1.50 meters (x 140 cm width). Rest of silver satin for the waistband. About 0.5 m black vlieseline H180.

    I love the pattern on the fabric. The hem looks really clean. Thanks for the how to. I will try it out on my wrap dress that I have abandoned since summer.

    Very nice. Thanks for the How-To. I like knits but I do struggle with it especially keeping them from bunching up and stretching. I will certainly give your how-to a try.

    Looks great! And thanks for the how to, sewing with knits can be a lot of trouble. Although I just found out a lot of the difficulties I’m having with it were caused by a minor defect in my sewing machine… But anyway, your hems look great, so I’ll be trying your method!

    Wow, nice fabric and I really like the satin band! The hem looks really nice, I’m really looking forward to the how-to. The "how-to button works, Lilo, I just tried, maybe you can try again. And, for those how gets error after post, if you see multiple post, you can delete it(button will be under post)! :)

    The shirt looks just great on you! And I am glad you made a How to about it, because I never succeeded in sewing jersey as exactly as you did.

    Oh,it fits you so well. Nice knit fabric (hard to find here). I’ll check your how to soon. I sew quite a bit of knit fabrics too and I cheat by using glue on tape and top stitch later.

    That’s a great shirt! And I love that you used an old pattern, I’m thinking about doing the same with some of those we’ve got (i.e. those my mom collected). :-) I’m looking forward to the How To, too, because the hem really looks very nice and clean.
