Polo Top

Once again, I am using a Stretch and Sew pattern to make myself another top.  Remember yesterday I wanted to make a polo shirt.  Well there is a pattern for such a thing in the pattern line-up.  This one is older, but still works just like new.

This is the easy installment of the front placket, which is what is needed to make it into a polo shirt.  This fabric is a soft "tee shirt" knit print of red ship anchors, and turquoise ship steering wheels, and is from an older Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic line. 

Here is the finished shirt.

And here is a peek of me modeling the shirt.  Nailed it, Love it!

You did a great job with this polo shirt. It fits you well and looks great. I'm wanting to try to make some infinity scarves for my great-niece. I bought two for her this Christmas (2014), but I did not like the finished seam where she sewed the turning part. She did it on the. Machine, but only did a short part of the length and it looks very messy. I decided I should make a few myself, but I've never sewn on knit fabric before. Could you tell me what type needle, thread I'd need to use in order to sew on knits? Thanks for your help. I'm really enjoying your blog. I've been reading backwards from your Christmas Link-Up to Bonnie Hunter's blog. Love all your projects. Thanks again,
