Project 2 of 50

After sorting through my daughter's winter clothes on the weekend, we determined that she has VERY few things that fit her. This prompted today's sewing - a long-sleeved t-shirt in her (2nd) favourite colour. Apparently, this week, her favourite is orange, but I only have one piece of orange knit and I'm selfishly keeping it for me, so red it was.

Pattern: Ottobre 01-2008-29 in size 128.

Fabric: Red Stella from Crafty Mamas

Alterations (for fit):
  • morphed to size 140 at waist and hips.
  • lengthened by 1" at hemline.
Alterations (for design):
  • added 4.5" to sleeve, just above vent (as drafted, this pattern is 3/4 sleeved, and we wanted long sleeves).
Other info:
  • all binding was done on coverstitch machine - 3/8" single fold for sleeve vents and 1/2" double fold for neckline and sleeve edges.
  • hem done on coverstitch machine.
