We teamed up with pattern designer and amazing sewist Liesl Gibson of Liesl + Co to use our fabrics and make this great tutorial on customizing her Women's Metro T-Shirt into this lovely high-low hem, A-line, color-blocked shirt in just 8 simple steps. I cannot wait to sew my own version!
Liesl shows us in step 2 of the tutorial how to bring in the side seam of the top to see a hint of the back fabric in the front view, creating a slimming effect that is super stylish. Brilliant!
As for the high-low style, this is created by drawing an S-curve along the side. As Liesl mentions, it is important to do this part in pencil before committing to any specific curve. You may need to erase and do it again until you're happy with the results. Once you've settled on your S-curve, don't forget to add seam allowances here.
We hope you enjoy this tutorial and please send 1-2 images of any project you make with Girl Charlee Fabrics to firstname.lastname@example.org and you might see your creation featured in our next KnitPicks!
