I completed another Just A Pinch vest. This one made from a lightweight cotton/linen blend fabric purchased at Hancock’s (Boo Hoo to the loss of Hancocks – we are all still in mourning).
No changes to this from the previous vest. I had added a bust dart, along with center back seam for my round back adjustment.
Indoor picture because it has been too hot and humid here to be posing outside. I also made the t-shirt underneath. I used V1363 again, and did an experiment. I removed the bust and back shoulder darts. Because the knit is so lightweight, I thought darts would be too noticeable. I am happy with the result.
This fabric for this vest is a very neutral beige color and needed something to amp it up. The t-shirt fabric is a rayon spandex I picked up at Joann on sale. It is very soft and I like the print and soft colors. The knit was easy to sew too – it doesn’t curl on the cut edges.
Close-up of the top-stitching I did. This is on the collar; I used a rayon embroidery thread and the built-in Sashiko stitch on my sewing machine. It is very subtle, but since topstitching was needed, might as well let it stand out a little more than matching thread would.
Next post will be for another Cutting Line Designs pattern…stay tuned.
