Experiment: Summer Concert Tee
Materials: 2 Yards of remnant blue-marbled knit
Coats and Clark light blue thread
Shopping for knit fabric at my local shop can be frustrating. It is hit or miss as to whether or not they will have what you want. Anywho, when you do find a knit you like, it is magnetic and there is ooo-ing and plotting. I always look at the remnant table -- those forgotten fabrics folded up always cheer up when I stop by. This blue marbled knit was being a tad shy, hiding underneath some home decor fabrics. But when I found him, I knew. Not enough for my Lady Skater dress but the perfect amount for the Summer Concert Tee.
If I sew this again, I will lengthen the front piece by a couple of more inches and I will also reduce the back by at least two inches. You can see in the collage above that the back piece hands well below my flat bum. Despite the length issues, it is comfortable. I have been traveling this week and I finally had time to finish this on Sunday morning. I wore it all day -- it stood the test of errands while making me look much cooler than I am.
Speaking of errands, I scored a whopping 10 yards of various fabrics today at a much reduced price and my son bought a orange fish and named him Finn.
Yea, it's already hot here! This is the perfect tee to pair with jeans or skinny pants, a cute pair of shoes, and off you go! Thank you Pattern Parcel #1. If you have little girls, PP#2 is perfect for you but only for a few more days!
To fabulous sewing this coming week!
