With the over locker thread now on black, I've taken the opportunity to whip up some simple black tees. I'm really beginning to feel more confident sewing knit fabrics with three of these drafted by moi!
this dress, binding the sleeves and neck with the reverse stripe of this fabric. I'm wearing this today and am happy :)
Dixie DIYs loose knit tee. I tried to only add volume to the back of this top hoping it would fold nicely, but it just sat funny, so I whipped it in on the sides. I raised the neck and little and tried not adding the bound sleeves. I like it. This is also a remnant, this time of lightweight ponte from this dress.
this is similar).
So there is some more necessary sewing dictated by the colour of thread on my over locker. I have two more knit items in black to finish off before I start sewing some fun clothes.
Can you tell I'm binging on sewing at the moment?? I'm so happy that my sew-ho is in full force at a time when I actually have time to sit at the machine. This phenomenon doesn't seem to happen often to me - well it feels like that anyway. You know, when you want to sew you have no time, when you have time you don't want to sew. Same as shopping with money means you find nothing to buy, but with no money and you find a zillion things you want. I know you know what I mean. I will stop now. Peace out friends.
