Sheryl’s Lola Tee

We were happy to have another visit from Sheryl this month, who booked into our Tessuti Pattern Sewing Class last Friday. Wanting to try her hand at sewing with knits and to learn how to twin needle hems and necklines, Sheryl chose to make up our Lola Tee pattern with a higher neckline.

Sheryl was shown how to raise the neckline edge at centre front (approx 5.5″) and blend it back to the shoulder line. Instead of binding the neckline as per pattern, placing the raw double edge to the neckline and turning over, Sheryl opted to place the folded edge at the neckline so that the double raw edge was left exposed to create this lovely curled edge at the neck (above).

As you can see Sheryl’s thrilled and planning a few more of these summer staples for her wardrobe. The fabric used is a lovely fine 100% cotton knit, White Charlie (available at Tessuti Surry Hills).

Happy Australia Day everyone!
