I Wouldn't Let Her Steal My Tee-shirt

so I made her one.  

Mama R was quite impressed with how the Rayon/Lycra® fabric drapes with this design, Vogue 9057, and there was enough fabric left-over, so why not? I love my Mom but I wasn't willing to give her the shirt off my back, maybe figuratively speaking. 

This version is slightly different than the first. It still has a flare, but this one is flared 1/2" more.  The sleeves were lengthened 1" as well as the hem length.  I finished the neckline as I did on the others and that it. I can't believe I was able to squeeze out another tee-shirt from the left-over piece of fabric.  

The Stats:  

Fabric:  1.4 metres

Fusible Tape:  2.8 metres Knit-N-Stitch™ fusible tape

Pattern:  Vogue 9057

Additional Tools & Supplies:  Sewing machine, serger, walking foot, pins, scissors, thread clippers, cutting table, iron, ironing board, sleeve ham, tailor's ham and love (not enough to give the shirt off my back) but rest assure there's a whole lot of love that went into this project because when it comes down to it, I love my Mom.  

Happy Sewing!

  1. I really like the floral/face 9057 top. Isn't it a great pattern. I have made about 4 of version D.
