Sometimes there’s no cure for sewing frustration like a quick diversion project.
(apologies for the picture quality – my camera did not like the mottled purple – see how nice the wood grain came out?)
As usual, I started from my fitted copy of Jalie 2005 (apparently now out of print). With this one I slashed and spread the front piece of the boatneck version to add a drape to the front neckline. In order for it not to matter how it fell, I decided on partially self-lining the front.

Since this jersey is so slinky, I encased a piece of ribbon when I sewed down the back neckline – it turned out to be a good move!
Blue print tshirt out of the same pattern, but this fabric had a lot less give in it.
Both are made from leftovers from this year’s SWAP, so double bonus! And my stash closet is now 2 metres lighter ;).
Now, back to DH’s shirt!!
