White Tree Fabrics x Vogue V8879


Well would you look at that! Skye, the girl with the huge jersey fear has finally bitten the bullet and made tshirts.

Even though I had moments of second guessing my choice to keep things simple for my first White Tree Fabrics project, I'm so glad I did now as I feel like I've had a little sewing breakthrough.

The pattern is Vogue V8879 and I've made view A and then a mix of B&C. If I'm honest, I'm not 100% sure that I'd call either top a roaring success in terms of fit, but the fact that I made them (mostly) problem free is definitely an improvement on past experiences with stretch fabrics.
The twist on the arms of the blue top is a feature I thought was pretty cool, but I'm really not sold on it in these photos. I also love the fit of the black tshirt, it's the perfect oversized slouchy fit that I go for, but again there's something not quite right about the sleeves.

My determination to really take on making my own hand made wardrobe has increased tenfold, and I have a feeling these fabrics had something to do with it. These jerseys were amazing to work with. Still slippery little suckers, but man what a difference good quality fabric makes. Although they're a little heavy for this weather, I love the drape of them and I hope these tops will become everyday pieces for me when it's cooler.

Anyway, as a special treat from White Tree Fabrics, you guys can enter the code "ARTICHOKES" to receive 20% off and free delivery on their site - so what are you waiting for, go!

I have one more top to share with you which I'm saving for another post, and it's definitely my favourite make so far - stay tuned :)
