Green Stripes

Self drafted kimono sleeve shirt, stripes matched on each and every seam! The fabric is very soft and the jersey has almost no stretch recovery. I therefore stabilized the shoulder seams and neckline with Vlieseline tape and added banded hems (inspired by the Sewaholic Renfrew Top - I was afraid that machine stitched hems would stretch too much). The knit is an organic cotton from Siebenblau.

  1. Such a nice Tshirt, the stripes are lovely and a very flattering style!
    Thank you so much for your comment and your fabric recommendations for an outdoor coat. The coat you made yourself is so wonderful, very stylish with the asymmetrical closure. Beautifully made!
