Reason #2: The quest for good fit, or my left side of my waistline is not higher than the right side of my waistline.
I picked up these tee-shirts because they were wool and have long sleeves. I live in Winnipeg where they are predicting flurries are on their way. And working at job that involves recess duty I'm in need of cold weather clothing, STAT!
I bought these tee-shirts where there are no change rooms and I'll admit I did not inspect them too closely. If I had tried them on at the store they wouldn't have made it on the trip home.
It had a made in Canada label, not a made in China label and I foolishly thought that meant some sort of quality check was in place. Boy, was I wrong. Crazy cutting and sewing can be found in all parts of the world.
Problem #1: The waistline curve is not horizontally aligned.
Problem #2: The length from the underarm seam to the hemline is off by half an inch!
It is really noticeable when I put it on, you'll have to take my word on that one.
Even though I was going to use them as winter undershirts it is just not comfortable.
Problem #3: The armholes are not the same shape.
And they are made out of a fabric that I haven't seen in any local fabric stores.
There you have Reason #2 of Reasons Why I Sew.
