My name’s Siobhan and I’m another TMS newbie – thanks for having me! I’m a Geneva-based sewing enthusiast and I blog over at justkeepsewing.net. Geneva has many fine qualities (mountains, lake, cheese etc.) but there’s not really much of a sewing community, so it’s particularly lovely to find such a vibrant virtual one!!
This was my first attempt at sewing with knits. Like Charlene (love your top btw!) I went with Tilly’s Coco pattern. A nice, simple sew, perfect for knit first-timers. I opted for the dress variation, with roll-neck and cuffs, which I think has a great 60s vibe. It came together really smoothly and I’m pretty happy with the result.
I used a double needle for the topstitching (another first), which gives a lovely professional finish. If I have one criticism it’s that I think the shoulders could do with raising a bit. Next time!
Feel free to hop over to my blog for a couple more details.
Hope you all have a lovely week.
