Jane Round 1

Last week I had talked about modifying the Jane to make a knot tee. Since I had to go ahead and print off the pattern and put it together again, I thought, “Why not make a ‘regular’ shirt while I’m at it?” So I hunted around in my fabric stash and unearthed a lace\mesh type knit that I had purchased ages ago at Needle Nook Fabrics (and by ages, I think that I got this at least 5 years ago and forgot about it).

It’s a pretty simple looking shirt until you get up close and can see the texture to it. It was a booger to hem, though as my machine kept making thread nests\eating the fabric, etc. – so I wound up just using a zig zag stitch in these areas to finish. Fortunately the the stitches just blend right in so it’s not noticeable at all! I think that this tee will work for spring or under some cardigans if we return back to “winter” this week.
