I'm finally starting to sew again. First up was StyleArc's Winnie funnel neck top for knits.
This was incredibly quick to sew. It took me 2 hours. At least 1/2 hour of that was trying to get my twin needle to work to hem it. I eventually gave up on the twin needle. I am getting very tempted to buy a coverstitch machine.
It is very hard to see which is the front and which is the back once it's made up. So I made my own label and added it.
The knit fabric is very light weight and is probably a bit too light for a funnel neck, so it tends to end up drooping a bit. But given how easy this is, I love it. Plus I like the slightly higher neck that keeps my neck warm in the cooler weather without feeling strangled like a turtleneck does.
It has 3 inch hems at the sleeves and bottom. Next time I'd just do it as a 1/2- 1" hem on the bottom as I'd like it a bit longer.
