#isewlation2020 : Updating my tee collection : Part 6 : Isla Top
I know that this is a sewing blog…. but I’m just wondering if you have even had that feeling that you’re being watched? Yeah me too…
With only three pattern pieces, Tessuti’s Isla Top was another quick sew.
The seam allowances are 1/4″ (6mm) so construction was on the overlocker. I did baste the neckline first… necklines are always the trickiest part of sewing a knit top/sweater.
The fabric is a viscose knit from The Cloth Shop (work) that had been in the stash a very long time. I love the colour!
I’m just a little bit sad that I have some wrinkling going on at the back. I experienced the same thing with two version of a woven Japanese pattern. With version 1 I thought the seams had stretched out before sewing, but when I made it again and stablised the seams pre-stitching and it still happened… I think I have a fitting issue on my hands! Can anyone shed any light on the situation?
