Crafts: Striped Briar Tee

I made another Megan Nielsen Briar! This time in a wheat and coral stripe with 3/4-sleeves.

I love the fabric colors, sleeve length and pattern, but the fabric was a pain to sew. It's lightweight and clingy (like Saran Wrap), and doesn't drape well or feel as nice as my Briar Rose Tee. My twin needle/sewing machine also had trouble with the low-quality fabric.

I purchased the fabric from Girl Charlee, because I've heard rave reviews about their knits. My order included three other knit fabrics, and, thankfully, they seem thicker and easier to work with. We'll see!
