Sewing tops for Tropical Destinations
Show 1305 will help you create go-to wearables for tropical destinations. Angela Wolf sews a perfect t-shirt to wear alone or under a jacket. Pattern designer and fabric expert Linda Lee shares tips for sewing on sheer fabrics and Michelle Paganini has more up-cycling tips.
T-shirts, can you ever have too many? Short sleeves, long sleeves, or no sleeves at all, many of us have quite a few in our closet but there's always room for more!
Angela's T tops always have an upscale look to them. T-shirts are an Angela Wolf specialty and in this episode you'll see how to shape a cap sleeve and hem it with a twin needle. The idea she presents is for a shirt that goes nicely under a jacket, with a bit of coverage but not too much bulk.
If you're looking to re-style an existing ready-made T-shirt you may want to take a look at a Free tip sheet I wrote for transforming a T-shirt. CLICK HERE and you'll find specific instructions for changing the neckline and adding some pizzazz to otherwise plain sleeves.
Next, Linda Lee from the Sewing Workshop sews samples of seams and hems for super light fabrics. Her sample jacket is sewn from silk. A jacket like this would be perfect to dress up plain, solid separates for a cruise or even dinner out close to home. In this segment she teaches the basics for both a French seam and a very narrow hem.
For yet another option you may want to take a look at the sheer wrap I presented on a previous show. CLICK HERE to see more.
In the last short segment Michelle returns with lots of ideas for adding a quick fix to existing garments. You'll love her slip tips for re-styling slips into practical camisoles, along with some additional ideas for making clothes more comfortable.
