I'm sewing B 5855 view A using some remnants I picked up during PRWeekend. They are all of the same color family but have different textures and weaves. I'm calling this my beach tee.
The panels came together very quickly. I used an overlock stitch to sew the seams, and then worked from the front to make a faux flat fell seam. I basically folded the fabric on one of the lines and topstitched. I then added another topstitching to catch the edges underneath. The topstitching is very subtle with this ?linen and for that I am glad. I had to wiggle the lines a bit to stay with the detail in the fabric.
|the flat fell seam runs from the lower left diagonally and parallel to the dark thread|
If you "biggify" this photo, you can find the topstitching. :-)
a) could bind the neckline with bias from one of the fabrics
b) could make a casing or channel with a drawstring at the neckline
c) turn and stitch
a) leave it alone-it might look very cool and boho
b) add elastic to the back
c) add tucks/darts to the sides
d) use a belt and wear this with slim pants
Any ideas you would like to add?
