The Monthly Stitch challenge for April is "sewing double". The exact interpetation of this wa left pretty open, so my first interpretation is sewing my version of a ready to wear, and sewing two garments from the same pattern:
I saw this T-shirt, over-priced, in Farmers.
I had a go and drafting a copy and came up with a more-or-less wearable muslin.
The embroidery is misplaced and not properly interfaced, but I was happy that the pattern incorporated all the features that I loved about the Farmers’ version.
I had plenty of black knit from the $1 stash, but didn’t have anything for the feature print. I found a stretch mesh. It has a suitable pattern, but it is see through. I faced the first version, but I lined the next one with a lightweight black knit, which solve the see-through problem, and meant that I didn’t need facing. Other than that, I made it the same as the wearable muslin.
I think that this is reasonable copy of the Farmers’ T and I can see it working well with black or grey in a professional environment, and the muslin makes a flattering casual top.
