Truth be told, I was nervous about hemming my first knit-fabric sewing project! Today the stars aligned and I had time at home without kids, and I went for it!

For the bottom hem, I used some Stitch Witchery to stabilize the hem and make it easier.

For the sleeve hems, I just went with ironing and the use of straight pins. I could have done a neater job, but I’d put it off for so long, I really just wanted to finish.

The fit isn’t terrible! I should be nice to myself for having tackled something new, rather than complain about what could have been better,  right?  So I’ll say that my second neckline is much better than the first attempt, and my color choice is great. I happened to be wearing my most beloved t-shirt today, and it’s almost the exact color of this one.

Modeled photos soon!
