I feel like I’m on a bit of a blogging roll! 3 posts this week has to be a record for me! *pats back*
I made yet another Vogue 8670. I really do think it’s my TNT t-shirt pattern. I never make the version with the cool turtleneck thing, but I do love the rest of the shirt.
- I had forgotten that I had cut down the 5/8″ seam allowances to 1/4″ seam allowances, so this version is a bit too snug.
- I had a minor panic when I thought I had a directional print. Because it looked as though I had cut the leaves upside down–turns out the leaves go every which way, so I wasn’t in any danger.
- I really need to write on the pieces how long the neckband should be for the v-neck that I’ve added. I still don’t know, and this one was a little snug (it’s a wrinkled mess lying flat, but fits smoothly when worn–probably unless I lose some weight and it’s less snug.)
- And this time, instead of sewing the darts, I just eased them in–LOVE!! Will definitely be doing that again!
Anyone else ever forget stuff when working on TNT’s? Most of the time I’ve got so many notes on my pattern pieces they look like I cut them from a handwritten newspaper, but apparently I don’t have quite enough notes on this one. 😉
Whatcha think? Isn’t that fabric pretty? I even had enough to cut out 3(!!) pairs of knickers! Speaking of knickers, my sewing table now has 8 pairs cut out and ready to assemble, so my lingerie drawer is about to get a serious overhaul. Woo-hoo! 🙂
