sucker for knits
I got sucked in my Kristin's (Skirt As Top) Scoop Top tutorial that she posted the other day. So I went downstairs and dug through my bin of knits and fished out this lovely stuff.
Kristin did an amazing job with the pattern (a women's small/medium) and the directions. I was really pleased after I tried it on! Don't think that I didn't have my struggles though. ha, no sewing project of mine would be complete without at least some. I for sure thought at one point that it was going to look like one of my kids tried to make me a t-shirt. Luckily I think I escaped that notion.
I hemmed the sleeves backwards, but ended up coming up with a kind of cool finish anyway. I also used the stay tape at the hem at the bottom, but ended up cutting it off and just trying again without it. For whatever reason it didn't want to work for me without looking like a hoola hoop was stuck in the hem.
I'm excited mostly because I put it on after finishing and didn't take it off for the whole day. That's a first for me. Gotta love a comfy knit.
