Today I think I'll show you how hardcore I can be. In that, I like to cheat sometimes. I'm lazy.
I keep patterns fully printed and taped hanging in my ginormous sewing closet. My daughter wanted her Centerfield Raglan in a bad way. (Even though she's 22, she can stomp her feet like a 2 year old.) So, I pulled the pattern off the rack, hanger still in tow.
I placed my jersey pillow case on top of the pattern and started cutting. Warning: Do not try this at home and blame me if you screw up!
Next, the coveted supergirl boom pow fabric I scored from Etsy:
I must say, this is not how I was taught to cut my fabric. But hey, my mom wasn't watching. No one was watching. I send everyone out of the house because I "have a deadline" today . . . . that's what I usually say anyway. And it does work!
I attach all the pieces with the serger. Even the neckband. I just iron a fold to mark centers and get crazy.
Not bad at all! Super!
Then I just fold under the sleeve ends, press with a warm iron (not too hot -- heat is the devil to knits!).
Line up the sleeves at the armpit to make sure they are kinda the same ( ha!) then grab a double needle and stitch.
And then when your daughter drives up and you say, go try your shirt on, you feel so very much like
You can buy a copy of the PDF pattern from Greenstyle here.
See you chicks later!
