Knit Gray and Lace Top

So this shirt is a good example of why I steer clear of knits.  Not only do I not have a cover stitch machine, but I also don't have enough know-how to work with the natural drape and stretchy-ness of knits so my knit projects always seem to end up wonky and seam-y (I know, I made up that word, but the seam always seem to spread apart when pulled). Not that this shirt was a total failure--it actually didn't look too bad on my Eesa--but there are plenty of things that aren't right about it.  And it didn't help that I didn't use a pattern.  And I gathered the ruffles too much.  And I also put a rolled hem on the lace after I sewed the seams, which didn't work out too well.  But, I do like the rose in the middle at least!

  1. I actually think this is really cute, but I know what you mean about sewing with knits. I don't like sewing with them either.
