When your overlocker's away....

….Sew Stretch!

Just put my overlocker in for a service but couldn’t let that stop me from sewing so I dived into my stretch stash and thought this pattern would be groovy to do.

I changed the sleeves and had to make the shoulders less slopey cause it was quite baggy round the neck .

Althugh it was fun sewing with stretch ( I might even make another one in a different colour), there is no way I would show the inside of this top to anyone.

Can’t wait to get my coverlock machine so it looks neat inside and out.

Material Notes

Jersey, slight shimmer, light weight.

    OOh I like I like this shirt and the color! Great fit and your belly is so flat! Oh yeah I have lots of things that I wouldn’t let anyone see the inside. I know how that ine goes. My serger was out for about a month but I was having symptoms of depression and just had to sew. :D
