Back at the beginning of the month I posted some sewing plans for 2017. Amazingly, despite lots of going off on a tangent, I have actually made up one of the garments from the plan!

Using the scant 1 metre length of bold floral print jersey fabric in just about 1 hour I produced this great ¾ length sleeved tee top.

The pattern is a hack from the bodice of the TNT shift dress. I simply cut the bodice 6 inches down from the waistline, ignored the body darts and made the sleeves from whatever length of fabric that was left after cutting the front and back body. Apart from the shoulder seams (stabilised with a length of 1 cm wide ribbon) and the bust darts, the construction was completed on the overlocker. The neckline, sleeve hems and garment hem were overlocked and then machined with a jersey twin-needle.

I love jersey sewing!!
