Stripe T Shirt dress

I have been sewing clothes since 12, first on a hand powered Singer with a choice of lock stitch and reverse, and oh boy what production went on with it.  I remember with great pride the bakers boy hat created during The Beatles first years of fame. Unfortunately I have no picture of this milliners perfection but I do have one of this my latest effort!

It took three machines and two hours to complete and I wonder which gave me the most joy to make, probably the hat .  Anyhow in case you would like to create your own version of this, it is a McCalls 6612 pattern. Very easy , not even a zip to trouble you. The lovely heavy weight fabric I bought online from http://www.dittofabrics.co.uk I recommend the site.

Hoping to uncover the over and cover lock machines and sew up this fab fabric today if not tomorrow, you know how it is!  Cotton Lycra Jersey lovely and soft yet substantial, no awkward creases when made up!  Hope you like it as much as I do. Bought it on line from Ditto Fabrics, they have some lovely stuff!
