Pink and red stripes

I saw this fabric on sale at the store and had to have it, total bargain, 2 1/2 meters for $20. Although the lydia is quite simple I always wanted to try it. Icouldn´t make the stripes match, only the ones on the sleeves and the back part. Added some circles as an applique. Love the finished result.

Material Notes

knit for the shirt and cotton for the circles.




Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Cotton, Knits/Jersey

    You did a great job!! Love the fabric pattern-the colors are great. Was Jersey hard to sew? I don’t have a good experience with strechy materials …

      thanks. It was a bit hard, because the fabric was really strechy, the most strechy I have ever sawn, had a bit of problems with the baste actually. but once you get the trick it’s easier.
