I cobbled together another t-shirt using some scrap lace and this pale pink jersey from fabric.com. The back and sleeves are sheer, the neckline and sleeve edges are bound using a 1″ strip of the jersey. I serged one of the sides, sewed the unserged side right sides together and then flipped over and did a line of top stitching on the lace just catching the serged edge of the strip. Very easy and non bulky finish.
The front is lined with the jersey. I planned to have it sheer but I didn’t like how I could see my bra so I lined it.
I wore it today with jeans but I think it would look pretty tucked in to a pencil skirt as well for a dressier look.
I say it was cobbled together as I really didn’t try very hard to make the binding perfect. It was very much thrown together but hey, its just a t-shirt and its very wearable so I’m glad I didn’t
waste spend hours extra trying to make it all perfect.
And also, here is my signup for Me-Made-May-2013.
‘I, Janelle of Sew Hopeful, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’13. I will endeavour to wear a handmade or refashioned garment/accessory every day for the duration May 2013’.
Me-Made-May was a real turning point for me last year. I met some amazing people who I have maintained contact with over the past 12 months, I got inspired, encouraged and motivated. I am SO looking forward to it again although it WILL be challenge.
The flickr group is here (no pics until May though) and the twitter hashtag is #MMMay13. Two weeks to go and no panic sewing happening here (cough cough).
