May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
Presenting....Bibi Sews very own version of the Glamour Magazine Do's and Don't shots! TA DA!
The lovely, lanky model in the DO shot is sporting a t shirt that fits, with the pocket placed in just the right
The unfortunate looking, portly model in the DON'T shot wears a 3 sizes too small t shirt with a rather awkward looking pocket!
1. Next time I will embroider the fabric and then cut out the pocket; even with 2 layers of stablilzer my stitching pulled the pocket inward, and many steam presses later it still retained a funny shape.
2. I will check and recheck the placement before I stitch the pocket to the t-shirt. I was able to remove the offending pocket by carefully cutting out the stitches, but it was VERY annoying.
3. I will be more aware of the placement of the bottom line of chevron and the point of the pocket.
Nevertheless, it was a nice Saturday morning in my sewing room, with sweet Issa on my old Bernina 200 sewing away on her little doll quilt, while I struggled and muttered obscenities in the background.
