I whipped this up last weekend I’m really happy with how it turned out. I picked up the fabric at JoAnne’s one day when I had a 20% off coupon. I was so surprised to find this fabric there. The last time I had looked for knit fabrics there, everything was either sold color or really old fashioned. Yuck.
But I lucked out with this and with another piece I bought (haven’t sewn it up yet.) My quest for knit fabrics has started because I recently purchased a serger. Which then sat in my studio because I don’t serge my quilts. I had to remind myself why I bought it in the first place — I like to wear knit fabrics, I like to sew my clothes, and I hate to sew knits on my regular sewing machine.
This was a great pattern to sew and very quick. And it brought back the days when I was 12 or so, taking a sewing class at Stretch and Sew because my Mom didn’t want me to mess up her new Bernina.
When I drafted it, I made almost no changes other than in the length (I’m rather short.) I thought I would like the neckline to be lower in front. But when I tried in on, I like it just the way it is!
