Jersey Knit T, Dyed With Juice and Wine!

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • Thin jersey knit
  • stretch clear elastic
  • blueberry juice
  • red wine.

Q&A with Gjeometry

SweetJasmine asked:
Great job and nice color! What size did you cut your pattern?
Gjeometry answered:
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.
CraftyNHmom asked:
That came out beautifully, I love the soft pink color!
Gjeometry answered:
Thank you! Since washing it a few times, it has faded to a more greyish purple colour. But, still a good colour.
papalene asked:
Dyed with juice and wine! Great dye job and t-shirt.
Gjeometry answered:
Thank you!! I figure if juice and wine stain everything else, why not use it to dye something on purpuse?
