B6388 with rib-line basting (for grain) still in

The fabric was way-twisted scatterwampus after I pre-washed it (by hand). In order to get grain correctly identified, I laid all the pattern pieces on the fabric (single pieces) and then basted along a rib line to find the grain that came the closest to the grainline marking on the pattern piece.


Then I matched them up as I pinned the patterns to the fabric and cut them out. Kept my fingers crossed. So this photo is of the garment with all seams except the side and under arm seams completed- with the basting for grainline left in. Felt pretty good after this.


This fabric purchase was an experiment - it's a bamboo sweatshirt knit fleece from I usually order extra yardage, but I had a specific pattern (which I have made several - at least 3 times - before) in mind for this fabric. So I purchased the yardage specified on the pattern.
