Girl’s Seena Dolman Tee
Zoey is modeling a new top- I sewed the girl’s Seena Dolman Tee pattern from Gracious Threads. It’s a real quick make, about a half hour or so. I wrote about the pattern and showed my women’s version of this top last month. I’ve been craving easy to sew projects that get a lot of use…so I’m showing another one!
I made a banded neck, sleeves, and waist. I save bits and pieces of ribbing from old t-shirts, but I didn’t have anything in the stash that matched. I think I prefer this method to ribbing, actually.
I assembly line sewed a few of these tops the other day. This particular one is made with Riley Blake jersey knitin gray. I had a little bit leftover fabric from my strapless sundress last summer. I didn’t have enough to cut the front on fold; so I used this ruffled elastic trim to cover the center seam. I used every crumb of this fabric!
This skirt used to be hubby’s button up, but there was a tear near the pocket. Proof that my hoarding old clothes is for good reason.
We’re still having trouble getting indoor photos. This is in my sewing room- there’s a spec of natural light from a glass door. In mid-afternoon there is harsh light on the left that casts shadows on the right. I’ll have to aim for early morning or late afternoon photo shoots.
I have a helper holding up a piece of fabric for a backdrop. We’re makin’ it work around here! Do any of you having trouble getting nice photos when it’s cold outside?
