What materials did you use? Thin jersey knit, stretch clear elastic, blueberry juice, red wine.

What are you most proud of? The fact that I made my first shirt out of stretch knits and it fits! Also, very happy with the colour it came out after dyeing it with the blueberry juice and wine.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used the triple stretch stitch, but found that the fabric was too thin for it, and it kept getting pulled into the feed dogs or getting stuck in one spot. Next time I use this type of fabric, I will use the narrow zig zag or a serger / overlocker.

Great job and nice color! What size did you cut your pattern?

Thank you! I used the XS for my pattern. I found that her sized for both the T-shirts and the Hoodie were very large! I am not a big person, but not necessarily an XS normally, either.

That came out beautifully, I love the soft pink color!

Thank you! Since washing it a few times, it has faded to a more greyish purple colour. But, still a good colour.

Dyed with juice and wine! Great dye job and t-shirt.

Thank you!! I figure if juice and wine stain everything else, why not use it to dye something on purpuse?
