Back in Black
Posted 12 October, 08on:
Finally… a sewing photo! Yes, it is a basic knit top in an entirely basic color, black. This textured knit has been in my stash forever. I barely had a yard, but wanted a long sleeve shirt. I had to wait for a pattern that was very economical with fabric. The raglan tee, Design #8 from the 05/08 of Ottobre, worked perfectly.
By the way, photographing black fabric indoors is no small feat. The sewing, however, was extremely easy. It’s a raglan tee. How hard could it be? The neckline is bound with the same fabric, but fold over elastic could also be used. Before I put the binding on, the neckline seemed a little large. The binding pulled it just enough. I would recommend a knit with a fair amount of stretch because the pattern is very close fitting.
I decided to post a photo of a very basic item to show where the neckline falls in real life. When I make it again, I will make a v-neck instead. I think a v-neck is more flattering on me. This is a pattern that could be made over and over again.
Stay tuned… there could more sewing photos soon. 😉
