I finally finished off my stretch block toile into a long sleeve T-shirt. This has been sitting on my to-do list forever so I’m glad I’ve finally managed to get it done. I scooped out the neck a bit and finished off the neckline with an open binding – if I can call it that.
The sleeves and hem are finished with a zig zag hem. I contemplated trying a double needle finish but haven’t quite figured out how my machine deals with two cotton reels (I think I’m missing the detachable spindle). Also I didn’t have a matching pink thread. (excuses…excuses…)
It’s a good little winter wardrobe number. Although next time i think I would make it a bit tighter – there seems to be quite a bit of extra fabric under the arms.
I’m still experimenting with finishing off necklines, hems etc in knit fabric. Do you have a favourite method that works like a charm? I’d love to hear about it.
Thanks for stopping by.
