Sewing and Craft

Simple Singlet

How are we all today? I’ve been a busy bee this week rediscovering my machine and have a singlet to show you. I saw this great kite knit fabric in spotlight a few weeks ago, but it didn’t have a lot of stretch and felt a bit stiff. I resisted and walked away. Fast forward a few weeks and while waiting in line to have some stretch velvet cut, my eye fell on the fabric and I decided ‘why not?’

I drafted this single pattern from an existing singlet, lengthening it a little, and adding extra width to the shoulder straps. Due to it’s lack of stretch I added a dart to the armhole to stop it gaping. The neck and arms are bound, and the hem is just turned twice and zig zagged in place. It was an easy garment to sew and I managed to complete it while Elijah had a nap which certainly made it easier!

I look forward to wearing this with a pair of jeans and a cardigan as Spring arrives.
