I've called this tee that I just finished experimental because while it's kind of a muslin, it's more than a muslin. Huh? I'm not really a believer in wearable muslins, as the times I've needed to make a muslin, the finished garment would have been anything but wearable. So, this is more like an experiment in fabric use, and in practicing my new coverstitch.
A reminder of the pattern:
And that's what I decided to go with first. PJs are safe, because if the fit isn't quite right, then who really cares?! Plus, the pattern pieces are all the same, so I would be able to test the neckline. Here's the result:
Gorgeous Fabrics, is super soft, and comes as a complete circle of fabric, like a huge tube. I had enough left over to make a cami that won't have side seams. It will also be an experiment with foldover elastic, and I'm thinking it's doubtful I'll be modeling that! Maybe on my dress form.
I've decided to look for a different scrunch turtleneck pattern, but I've had to rearrange my sewing list! Turns out, in 2 weeks, we'll be attending a formal dinner, and I know just what I want to make. Look for the muslin (a real muslin) perhaps this weekend.
