Project

Bluestocking Fabric from Marcy Tilton

What are you most proud of? This was my first serger project. After telling myself for years that I didn't need one, I love it. Working on this knit mesh was challenging. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make samples galore when working on fabrics with multiple thicknesses and textures. Breathe deeply and try again.

Q&A with csinclair1201151

Annieg2 asked:
I love the way you sewed the two fabrics together,
csinclair1201151 answered:
Thanks, Annie. There are actually three fabrics. The stripe is in the back and on one cuff. The hardest part was working with the stretch mesh which was very fine.

very pretty--I'm so impressed!
csinclair1201151 answered:
Thank you. Take a look at Marcy Tilton Fabrics on her website. She takes all the guesswork out of ensuring that the fabric hues work together.
Janellesews asked:
Are there directions in the pattern for doing the crossover style, or did you make that alteration on your own? If so, how? Gorgeous! btw.
csinclair1201151 answered:
HI, and thanks for your question. The pattern is Vogue V8536, a completely different pattern, which I had in my pattern stash for a long time. I've also made the same pattern with a charcoal knit. I love them both but a word of warning: they are warmer because the front is double. I just used the same principles taught in the class to make them. I think if you were adept and bold, you could probably create the crossover with the T-shirt pattern in the class, but I'm not there yet.
