Tonight I am catching up on my TNT Tee Contest posts and I wish to show you my last Tee, the 4th. I have my Tee #1 here, and Tee #2 here and here is Tee #3. You already know that this is my 4th make with my Butterick pattern – B5988. With this one I made cap sleeves – according to the instructions even!
I found a lovely fabric in my stash. I don’t have the faintest idea what it was though… I assume it was some kind of polyester. It sure hangs nicely and was very easy to sew.
I do love how the cap sleeves were put together. My patterned fabric and my solid black fabric were placed right sides together and sewed together at the bottom hem, then turned right side out, pressed and top stitched. Then the cap sleeve was sewed into the armhole. It made a neat finish.
Ta Da! Love those cap sleeves!
I had a very accommodating photographer tonight (my daughter), she does an excellent job taking photos, unfortunately every time she instructed me to look here or look there or do this or that – I would start laughing uncontrollably. Sigh! Heidi Klum does not have to fear for her job!
I cannot say this is my last Tee with this pattern. I originally bought it to use with a white woven with a green lace overlay, opposite to what is shown on this pattern photo. Time will tell what I end up making.
What’s next? I have been busy with a Craftsy course I have been taking and I am almost finished the garment I made during the course. I shall show you soon, maybe next weekend. I am very happy with the course and the garment!
I think I would like to try my hand at muslins next – bodice, skirt, pant, etc. I bought some lovely fabric during my trip to the Vancouver area and I would like to polish up my skills before cutting into any of that beautiful fabric. I’ll be watching for your hints and tips!
But again, time will tell what I end up making.
In the meantime, Happy Sewing!
Is anyone else doing the OWOP challenge? I am, guess what I shall be wearing?
