Wanting to stick with the idea of using some notions I had sitting around, I stumbled across this lace and simply had to use it on something. Enter some ivory rib knit fabric that I had left over from an old project, and we were in business!
Do not be fooled, this is actually much easier than it looks! It is not too many steps away from sewing a regular T Shirt. So long as you are using a sturdier knit like interlock, and you don’t have to worry about wonky hem lines, you are in business.
When looking for lace trim, be sure to stop by the clearance bins at your local fabric store. I don’t know about you, but mine is always loaded with them!!! Not the color lace trim you want? Lace can always be dyed with a little RIT, case in point can be found HERE. The lace I used was 1.5″ in width, so I doubled it up in a couple of places for extra width.
Let me show you what I did…
I made the mistake of not sewing my bias trim neckline on the back pattern piece with the stretch going the right way. Be sure when using bias trim, your stretch goes left to right – that way you can slip the shirt on over head. Not wanting to pull out the seam ripper, I opted to make a quick keyhole button loop along the back center. Totally unnecessary if you do as I say, not as I do…lol.
But there you have it, a super cute and comfy shirt for you or your little one!
Gotta love that 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
