Materials: Exclusive rayon jersey from my Girl Charlee knitfix!
Time: 1-2 hours - relatively speedy!
Difficulty: Confident beginner
I had one heck of a time trying to use my double needle on the hems and to stitch down the neck band, and I finally gave up and used a stretch stitch. Does anyone else just LOATHE DOUBLE NEEDLES? I have only used it once successfully on the Soleil dress I made for my niece. I'm so over it. I see a coverstitch machine in my future (mwahaha!)
Side note on the fabric: I got my first KnitFix from Girl Charlee last month. A mystery bag of multiple 2 yard cuts of fabric? Yes please! I was pleasantly surprised by what I recieved. The chevron was one of the fabrics I got and it is so soft and has excellent drape. Soooo soft. I've always avoided rayon jersey blends, but if they're typically like this then I may have reevaluate! Consider my toe dipped in the proverbial water.
This is my second addition to my Selfish Sewing Week 2015 collection! Though, I guess it's not really selfish when you're giving it as a gift is it...hmmmmm. I guess I more consider this week "adult clothing week" haha!
Thanks for stopping by!
