Hey! It's Shams of Communing with Fabric with another garment made from a beautiful Britex fabric!
For this project, my assignment was to choose a fabric from the Knits category. I quickly settled on a lightweight jersey featuring a bold, modern print.
This lightweight, drapey fabric is perfect for a drapey, warm weather harem pant, or a summery top. I think it would pack beautifully!
Some sewists are nervous about sewing jersey knits, but I had no problems with it. It's a perfect candidate for sewing with a serger, but you can also use a regular sewing machine, as I did.
It was such a quick, easy sew, that I don't have much to say about the process! Wait, I will say one thing. This pattern features a waist yoke with no elastic. Given my unique shape with a narrow hip and a short crotch, I omitted the waist yoke (for a perfect crotch length!) and I added an elastic casing. When your hip and waist measurements are about the same, using no elastic can be asking for a wardrobe malfunction. ;)
