A second Socks
I am not sure I ever been that fast to sew up a fabric after buying it or to sew a pattern for a second time but this week I made myself a second Socks Pullover. I made a slightly different version with a lower collar and the faux buttoning on the shoulder.
I cut exactly the same size for this second one and somehow, it came out much tighter, still fine to wear but much more fitted. The fabric is a viscose/polyester jersey that I bought in Lille last Saturday for my first visite to Les Tissus de Lille.
I found some lovely buttons in my stash to add to the shoulder.
For a neater finish, I decided to add a band over the raw edge of the neckline. I had to sew it by hand first as it was quite fiddly but I am happy with the result as it looks much neater.
Of course it didn't take long to make this second version. I assembled everything with my overlocker (same as the first one actually). I managed to finish it on Friday night so I have worn it this week-end.
Maybe this is my new favorite? And another finish for January 🙂 I now have a pair of Socks 😉😁 (sorry I couldn't resist!)
And with that, I have also managed to spend at least 4x15 minutes on sewing related activities this week again.

Very cute! I've not sewn clothing in years, not sure I could at this point. You did a great job, it looks very professional.ReplyDelete
What a lovely pair of Socks! Love how this version turned out. Those buttons are the perfect added touch. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
