Now here is probably the last Freya that I will be making in 2021! I used 2 metres of Viscose Jersey bought from Dalston Mill for £13.20. The picture on the website made the fabric seem like just the shade of Forest Green that I have been looking for. Unfortunately however, when it arrived it was much more like a Deep Teal. Never mind it is still a good colour that will fit into my colour palette.
The fabric is very lightweight and again I was back to ‘herding cats’ as it slipped and slid all over the place. Once I had ‘wrangled’ the fabric into submission it took very little time to run up the new Freya. I added double cuffs to the sleeves and turned up the hem with twin needle stitching.
As a break from jersey sewing I am now working on a new self-drafted pattern for a woven fabric dress. Keep watching…..
