Same Deal. Selvedge become sleeve and bodice hem. No hemming!

Worn With Stitch in Time Sweater Sun-Ray Ribbing, which I put on backwards
Quick Note on the Santa Monica Tee pattern:
  1. Textile Studios is no longer in business, but you can still find the pattern online. Google it. I think it's still at Vogue Fabrics in Evanston, IL. At least I hope it is because I cut this pattern out in size XS...and I need to bump up a couple sizes for more ease.
  2. This pattern is serger-ready. In fact, are in "serger-ese," however I sewed it using the Viking Husvarna in Vogue's sewing room. I rented the room as part of the store's Sewing Salong. $5 for the entire day! 
  3. This top could easily be sewn in an hour. Yes, an hour. There's a dart at the top of each sleeve, once done, you attach sleeves to the bodice, stitch up the sides. Done.
  4. Speed up the process by using scallops or selvedge edge as your hem.
