Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project?

Figuring out how to work with knits and have it turn out looking fairly good and sewing a knitwear garment that was flattering on me. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would use a thinner fabric next time or just hem each panel. There are two layers of fabric on each front panel, resulting in four layers of knit on the front and one on your back. It makes the shirt a bit heavy in front, and I had to tack the two panels together at the V to keep the front panel from falling forward.

Q&A with artistikim

So Sew Easy asked:
OOps - hadn't finished. I was going to say that I won't gather the other front panel next time for a slimmer look.
artistikim answered:
That's a great idea. I'll have to note that on the pattern for future reference. Thanks!
