Last weekend I celebrated America’s birthday a little too enthusiastically and now I’m still trying to catch up. I didn’t even finish these in time for the Scout Sew Along July 7th deadline at Kollabora.
I’m not too worried about it since they are pretty basic tees and I already own all of the Grainline studio patterns.
I didn’t finish the hems on either tee. I think that method works on tissue weight knits as the hems roll slightly. I’m working on a rayon version that requires some double needle action.
fabric: purchased from Denver Fabrics, but looks really similar to this print from Mood Fabrics. It’s also tissue weight.
mods: lowered neckline by 1.5″, lowered back hem by 3″ to create a hi-lo hem, lengthened sleeves by 4″.
The insides are serged. I’m such a lazy bum that I didn’t change the thread color! I actually baste before I serge, so the process takes longer than it should. I also put twill tape in the shoulders, which I usually forget! I think that helps retain the shape quite a bit. The fabric doesn’t get so stretched out.
Well, that’s it for today! How many Scouts have you made?
