Golden Stripe Tee
Spring is officially here and I feel an itch for some transitional clothing: Items warm enough to be paired with a light jacket for the cool mornings and comfortable alone as the temperatures start to climb midday (any day now! It is Spring after all). After I sewed the tee below I had just enough width of fabric in the two yard length to make a scarf. Perfect for early Spring!
the pattern: the t-shirt top from Alabama Studio Sewing & Design (modified to delete fluted sleeves)
the sewing: I am polishing my hand-sewing skills in preparation for a true Alabama Chanin beauty that is in the planning stages. All the seams were machine stitched to speed the process, but I then felled each with a straight stitch and used a “snail trail” stretch stitch for the neckband binding.
