I’ll confess – I love a good skivvy. It has this gloriously daggy connotation, and reminds me of a childhood wearing out our VHS tape of The Wiggles’ Big Red Car.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my first attempts at sewing with merino jersey. Although my pink Paola Turtleneck Tee wasn’t a winner due to the lightweight fabric, my other merino jersey projects have been far more successful – starting with this Pattern Fantastique Glacial Tee in Argent Grey 100% Merino Jersey Knit 200g from New Zealand Merino and Fabrics.
This outfit was a near miss – one of those projects that you mess up so frustratingly that you want to chuck in the bin and forget about. Lucky me that I chose to persevere!
