Marlene and Miss MarleneJanuary 23, 2017 / bySabra / Categories : Feeds
I have another German-translated-to-English pattern from Näh Connection for you all today. Actually, two. The Marlene and Miss Marlene.
I sewed up the Marlene for Ivy and the sister pattern, Miss Marlene for myself. Both are very easy sews that result in a great-fitting tee, with some fun design elements.
The shoulders of the tee have little inset pieces. They are the perfect way to add a pop of contrast, color, and fun. I used some fun strip baby rib to coordinate with this dino print from Emrose Fabric.
For my Miss Marlene, I used a basic navy stripe I picked up for a steal at Craftsy’s end of the year sale (affiliate link) with a solid navy at the shoulder piece, to keep things classic and simple.
I have a thing for striped tees, it would seem. I own three now, two of which I’ve made.
They are just so classic and easy to wear. And a boat-neck stripe? I didn’t have one of those! Especially not one with shoulder insets. It was basically a need.
As I said before, these are very easy sews, just a step above first sewing project level. I do wish that Ivy’s were a bit longer. Easy fix for next time, which there will likely be because her little tee has been getting a ton of wear over the past month or so. For mine, which I made after finishing my daughter’s, I extended the length to the largest size, while keeping to my measured size for the rest of the top. I am very happy with the resulting length, and overall fit.

I accidently published these photos a few weeks ago, without any text. Sorry for the confusion in that.

About a year ago I attended Melbourne’s first restash event. It’s a get-together where you take fabric, patterns, and any other sewing supplies that you no longer require, put them onto long tables, then take home things that other people have brought along! I think that I came home with less than I took (which… Continue reading McCalls 7125read more
