Crushed Tee

crushed tee1a

I love crushed fabrics, and have a great stash.  When I can find I buy – this deep cobalt colour is gorgeous and the only place I could find this fine quality is in Germany myfabrics.co.uk  called ‘crash jersey’, I’ve since found some at Marcy Tilton’s site also.   The other multi colour fabrics came from Marcy Tilton’s site.

I used my own rough tee pattern and marked off where I wanted the cuts to follow the body. then I traced off the pieces with very small seam allowances – I only allow enough for the ‘serger’ or overlocker as we call it in Aust/NZ.  So there is no actual allowance.  You have to get the fit right at the start.  I overlock all the pieces once cut. Then I pin the pieces together and sew a straight stitch to put it al together.  I attached some eyelet tape across the front, not so much to break up the pieces more but to actually bring it all together.  I love wearing this, no ironing, and the colour is bold but not bright!

Yay, I just found more CRUSHED fabrics on fabric.com  http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Darts-crafts&field-keywords=Florence%20Crushed%20Jersey%20Knit
