Stitch Upon a Time's Merryweather Top Sewing Project - Navy Polka Dots


I've been looking for a simple T Shirt pattern with different sleeve lengths and a v-neck option.  Most importantly I've been after a pattern that has a bit of flair about the hips to cover my post baby belly.  

The Merryweather Top & Dress pattern from Stitch Upon a Time fits the bill perfectly.  It was also super easy to sew up.  

I was particularly impressed with the instructions for the VNeck.  I've tried this type of pattern before and made a complete mess of it.  The instructions from Stitch Upon a Time were extremely detailed and very clear.  I followed them closely and got a result I'm delighted with.

It starts with the shoulder seams.


Then the sleeves are set in.


Then the side seams.


I finish the hems at the same time.


Now for the neck band, it gets folded in half and pressed.


The ends are sewn together with a carefully placed V.


This V shape is mirrored on the shirt front.


Then very carefully snipped.


I really took my time applying the neckband to get it positioned perfectly.


Sewing the rest of the neckband in place is pretty straight forward.


A good press.


And I top stitched the neckband for a professional finish.


I use a twin needle to stitch my hems.
