I actually have been doing quite a bit of sewing lately, did you ever have a favorite shirt that had seen better days? Well I have one of those. It is my favorite designer, and I know I have a spending problem with her. I do not want to spend another $98 on a simple little shirt. So I decided to copy it. The first shirt I didn't make a pattern piece, which I did because it fit perfect, just a bit snug. So now I am trying to make a pattern piece
Here is the tracing that I did with a temporary marker. Love these little weights to hold the fabric still.
The front piece is the cut on the left. I bought the fabric several years ago, so it felt like I made this shirt for free. I have a large stash of basic fabric for tons of stuff that I am making now. I also just ordered some fabric from Emma One Sock. That site even has some Eileen Fisher fabric that I buy occasionally! Can't wait for my purchase to arrive.
The shirt was done completely on my BabyLock serger. Sometimes I wish a serger had a speed control because it goes too fast.
I always have to make a label. I was thinking my own label could be koroknits.
My serger does a fabulous cover stitch. I did all the hemming for the sleeves, neckline, and hem with the cover stitch, it was finished so fast.
I love it!
