Skipper, The Comfiest Shirt

Without a doubt, this shirt is one of the comfiest that I own.

This week I managed to put together Seamwork’s latest pattern, Skipper, and paired it up with a wonderfully soft French Terry to make this shirt (which will probably become a wardrobe staple). This was a great “quick sew” – everything came together nicely (i.e. all the pieces lined up well) and the instructions were very straightforward (honestly, if you’ve made a knit shirt before, you can probably skip the instructions all together). In the end, I did wind up adding a pocket (even though I said that I hated how large it was) – about half way through sewing this up, I realized that adding a pocket added something extra to the shirt and help differentiate the front from the back without having to add a tag. I managed to blend in the pocket well enough that it doesn’t overtly stand out, but I know it’s there!

As for the fit, it’s very comfortable. This sweatshirt is meant to be a bit over-sized and boxy, but because my fabric has less structure than Seamwork’s models, mine has a bit of drape looks more flattering (IMHO) when worn. If it wasn’t a snow day yesterday, I would have gone out and tried to find fabric to make a pair of coordinating Shelly leggings so I had an entire outfit ready for the weekend (I’ll be honest, it’s so cold out today, I’m not sure I’ll even do it this afternoon).

    Stacy, I am working up the courage to try garment sewing. Is Seamwork a good way to try? I have done quilting and over time made boys (now they’re adults, so they tell me!) Halloween costumes and jammies.
