polka dot ensis tee
hello sewing friends!
i’ve got something new to show you today – another ensis tee!
the last one i made is in regular wardrobe rotation, it’s great. my favourite colours, with bonus long sleeves.
my cousin suggested i should do a lace yoke on one after she saw the original ensis i made, so i popped onto ebay to see what i could find.
i saw the polka dot lace and thought it was the cutest, so bought it as well a metre of black cotton jersey, i think it was about £12 for both of them together.
the tshirt isn’t a difficult make and came together in around 2 hours one evening after work.
there wasn’t much pattern matching to be had, but tried to make sure that i had an even line of dots down the front of the top.
my neckline definitely isn’t wonky, i don’t think my seam allowance was lying flat while i was taking these. annoying!!
my main annoyance is that i didn’t think where my bra was going to show through, haha. in these pictures i went for a nude bra, but when i’ve worn it i’ve put a black vest on underneath just to cover up the irritating little bits of bra you can see.
i could probably down size the next time i make this – the only reason the grey & blue one fits me a bit tighter than this one is that i cut the first one wrong, haha. i cut it so all the stretch is up/down instead of left/right as this one is. this means i’ve got much more room in this version!
my mom had just told me i always look very serious in blog pictures, which made me pull this face aha.
so there you have it, a very different ensis tee to the first one.
