Crystal Midnight

I’ve been sewing up a storm – all the fabric bought from Fabworks has been made up!  This is the last piece, a really nice jersey, although I’d call it a knit rather.  I had thought it would make a fab tee, loved the colours and digital type print.  When it arrived I realised it was thicker and weightier than I had pictured.  I’ve still made a tee-shirt, but this will be more of a cooler weather tee than a hot weather one!  I am most definitely counting it towards part of my Sew Seasonal Wardrobe.

Birgitte Tee by Maria Denmark

I reverted to the Maria Denmark Birgitte tee, v-neck with three quarter sleeves.  These particular sleeves are 4cm shorter than the pattern and 3cm narrower at the cuff.  I find the pattern as drafted is a little too wide at the cuff, and I prefer them a little shorter too.  I really like this pattern as a quick make, the fit works for me.

I am sorry the fabric isn’t softer and drapier than I imagined.  However, if you were thinking of making a cardi, in particular the Wendy Ward Longley cardi, you could definitely use this!

This summer looks like it will be made mostly in blue and white, which is no bad thing.  My colours in general tend to be blue, black, grey, white and a bit of beige/camel/tan thrown in for warmth.  They all go together well and remain pretty classic.  I know some people will think it’s all a bit boring, but I like it! 🙂

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!

  1. It’s not boring it’s perfect – I got a really ‘boring’ delivery last week – all solid colours – but they’re make garments that I’ll wear much more that all the bright prints in my stash 😃

    1. Thank you 🙂 I stiitched it on with the machine first, then used the overlocker, it’s made for a much better finish.

  2. I have fabric envy – I love the texture and colors and your neck band is enviable too. Great make
