Tissue knits and I have a very passive-aggressive relationship. They always promise to behave properly before they get into my studio; but once home they immediately start sneaking around causing trouble. Most confrontations end up Tissue Knit 1; Sew Maris 0.
See what I mean? Most T-shirts do not end up making me look as broad as the side of a barn, and ummmm, frankly, matronly. <shudder>
These sleeves hit at the wrong point, and ride up if I wear a cardigan because they are all loose and sloppy. The artsy, little twisted neckline looks like CRAP. There are some weird flare-y things going on at the sides near the hem.
WTH? I generally like princess lines on my body. I like purple. I have successfully attached cute, artsy little necklines onto Ts before. But this shirt is just one hot mess.
I am not giving up on this pattern; I think made up using a fabric with a bit more heft things could turn out differently.
Maybe part of it is I grew up sewing on linen, wool, and nice weight cottons, and I just haven’t developed a “light touch” for for handling these uber-soft and lightweight knits. But this fabric has beaten me once too often; I am going to conquer it or die trying. Game on!
