Last fall I used this pattern to make two tshirts. They turned out to be my most wear cloth last winter. What can I say, New England weather calls for some kind of t shirt top almost everyday.

I got several new pieces of silk knits fabric over the past few months. By several I mean 10 pieces!!! I decided to make some new tops for the spring. This tshirt is such a quick make. I cut the fabric on Friday night, and by Saturday night, I already wear it to friends house. IMG_3534

I usually don’t wear cloth with lots of color, however I feel the color of both tops are not too much. I wear these top with black Yoga pants or jeans at home. I also wear them to work with my skirt. They are both very versatile as good wardrobe basics.

The fabrics are silk knits. Before cutting I threw them in the washer and dryer to pre-shrink it. I love silk but there is no way I can handle the tedious dry clean and maintenance. The fabrics handled the washer and dryer well. There is minimum color lost.

Silk knits is not the easiest fabric to sew. I serged a 1/4 inch transparent elastics along the shoulder seams and neck seam to re-enforce the seam. I learned this technique from Nancy Zieman’s youtube video for sewing with knits. The clear elastics help the shoulder and neck line keep their shape. I top stitched all seams with my cover stitch machine. I have had the cover stitch machine for about 6 months. It made all my knits cloth finish so much more professional.

I snapped a few photos yesterday:

Both tops are so comfortable I even use them as pajamas. Did I mention that I bought 10 pieces of new fabric recently? I plan to make at least 3 more tops using this pattern for my spring wardrobe. As I said, New England calls for long sleeve top all year around.

Thanks and have a great day.

Best

我要是有你的手艺就开心了,自己做, tailored to one's own size 才是穿衣的最高境界 -pe07- 给 pe07 发送悄悄话 pe07 的博客首页 pe07 的个人群组 (0 bytes) () 04/06/2017 postreply 18:30:17

我梦想就是可以DIY衣服,可是手太笨。羡慕楼主,只是这两条SHIRTS 的颜色花纹不大适合亚洲人。范图里那些很好看的。 -情穆- 给 情穆 发送悄悄话 情穆 的个人群组 (0 bytes) () 04/06/2017 postreply 22:18:39

做的真好。我也喜欢缝纫。不过基本都是给孩子们做。自己能买就买了。成人装更有意思。买了几个vogue 纸样,还没做呢。 -Windy2009- 给 Windy2009 发送悄悄话 Windy2009 的博客首页 Windy2009 的个人群组 (0 bytes) () 04/07/2017 postreply 04:44:23

真棒。我是孩子都不要穿我做的,所以只能自己做小白鼠。 -emplid- 给 emplid 发送悄悄话 emplid 的博客首页 emplid 的个人群组 (0 bytes) () 04/07/2017 postreply 04:46:29
