My weekend craft-ivities include altering 2 tank tops for my daughter, knitting and browsing the latest addition to my library, Keitodama issue no.153. This is an interesting issue, with shetland lace and fair isle.
My daughter won some shopping vouchers and the 2 tank tops were part of her voucher buys. She bought the red tank top because of the laser cut scallops at the neckline, armhole and hem. It needed only a bit of taking in the seams at the armpit. Thankfully that was all, because the fabric is very slippery to sew. She bought the other tank top for the Peter Pan collar and the polka dots. It is bias cut, or more accurately it is almost circle cut. The width at the hem is amazing. Since I had to take in the armhole seams, I also narrowed the tent-like hem. It has a more flattering shape now, see below.
What I'm really proud of is the french seams I sewed, following Jen's tutorial. Thanks, Jen! Happy little dance :) It's nice to have a crafty start to my weekend. It's 2pm on Saturday for me here. My son has just come back from band camp and camp must have been highly motivational. As soon as he reached home, he took his bath and is now practising his baritone! The sound of music is in the air. Hope you are enjoying your weekend too!
