tencel sailor

Added Jul 2, 2010

Somewhere, Curre...






when I saw the blog post on tencel I got interested in it and wanted to know what it feels like.
I didn’t think I would find that fabric on ebay, but I tried anyway – and I was lucky, 1€ : D

Now it’s a loose sailor top!
At the moment “loose” is essential because Germany seems to have moved south.
36°C what’s going on?

I used a pattern from burda magazine but changed it.
In the back and front there are some triangular shaped seams.

Oh, and I love the buttons, they have stripes at the sides : )

(the red stuff on my arm is a faded canada flag – canada day)

    This is so cute! I have a question though, do you have to use a stretch needle when sewing with Tencel? Novice sewer here :)

      Thank you!
      I didn’t and it worked well (just used a zigzag stitch) but, to be honest, I don’t know much about needles.
      I just tried and was happy to see there were no problems : )
