My sewing class have been trying to get to grips with sewing Jersey on their machines. It has 'stretched' them to understand all the dials on their machines - stitch length, stitch width and stitch choice.
I made a slouchy T from the October edition of Prima magazine
If you have this free pattern, be warned, it is mighty wide. This is a size 10. I usually cut a 12. I still took a curved chunk off the sides as you can see in the photo.
But it is slouchy and comfortable, a real home T-shirt for doing my Mundane Monday jobs. My class also learnt, often the hard way, that the neck binding on a T-shirt elevates the garment from pyjama top to daywear! They tried really hard on scraps first learning about the stretch ways of jersey. If you can master a jersey neck binding - the world is your oyster.

Happy sewing - I am off to have an hour on my jersey Bettine dress before I do the school run.
