An update on The Stockholm Challenge for you today. Seems apt considering we just got back...*ahem*...
You remember I went to Berlin in January? And came back with a challenge to sew before heading to Stockholm at Easter? Well it got done and has been VERY well worn since being handed over to the lucky recipient.
It's a modified Thread Theory Newcastle Cardigan, into a Henley tee. Why do this when Thread Theory have a perectly lovely Henley Tee pattern anyway?
Because then it wouldn't be a challenge. Duh.
|I kid you not. This shirt is exactly the same...|
|...as this one.|
Loads of RTW t-shirts seem to be binding/stabilising the shoulders and neckline with a srip of self fabric at the moment. Take a moment to root through your t-shirts and have a look, spotted it? Naturally, I blatantly ripped it off and copied it. You can see it in the picture above. What do you think? Nifty, eh?
All the seams are flat-felled again, which gives it a bit of a nicer finish and should make it a lot more durable too!
Until I can grab a live-action shot of the top, you'll need to make do with these.
|Front. Shoulders don't really fit on a female form...|
This top has garnered far more comments and compliments than anything else I've ever made. I don't know whether to be proud or offended ;)
Standby for another Stockholm post soon...
