Pinterest and all the amazing sewing around blogland for these pieces that are hopefully multi-seasonal but some just plain fun. First off...
...a slouchy woven tee.
Made from: A piece of thrift store woven, semi-knit, mesh-y synthetic stripe fabric from another era. I don't really know what it is. But I bought it with no pattern in mind, just summer. It doesn't iron at all, would probably melt, but turned out to be a perfect match for this pattern that has no facings to press.
Mods: The pattern calls for the neckline to be finished with binding made from the same fabric but because of the no-pressing issue I used bias binding instead, which worked superbly. I used the bias again to hem the shirt but finished the sleeves with a regular hem because I thought you would be able to see the bias binding the way the sleeve sits when finished. It wouldn't press at all so I rolled it over twice, pinned then stitched. It got a little stretched along the way but because of the way the sleeve is held up it's not noticeable.
