Sewing Papercut Patterns: Ensis Tee
The first one I chose to make was the Ensis Tee from paper cut patterns. I wanted to use my gorgeous organic jersey that Lillestoff had recently sent me.
I had so many ideas brewing. I drew some sketches, matched up some contrasting fabric and switched on the overlocker. a quick sharpen of my scissors and I was off….
Ensis Tee number one:
I usedand teamed it with mint plain sweatshirt fabric, also from Lillestoff.
The pattern fit was perfect, a superb easy sew, with excellent instructions. I left off the band at the hem and kept the edge curved. I also shortened the sleeves to 3/4 bracelet length.
Actually, they are so quick to sew, I made two, more on that one later…
Have you ever sewn a papercut pattern, if so which one?
You can even hang up the packet, make a little book from the instructions and you get a post card instead of a picture on the front of the envelope, I love postcards!! Always the little things that make me happy…
