The Delila Pattern #AW1531
I really like this pattern. I've made it before, here and here. As far as the pattern itself, it is one of my favorites. Angela Wolf paper patterns are so well made and put together. The instructions are very beginner friendly too.
Angela Wolf made a video demonstrating how to remove the color from your fabric; it is quite easy to do. I bought a box of Rit Color Remover from Joann Fabrics. I actually just used half the package for one shirt and saved the other half for this shirt.
I purchased my black rayon jersey knit from Joann Fabrics. The cool part of using the color remover is the surprise you get once you are done. I had no idea what it would look like till I cut off the rubber bands. I really thought I would end up with shades of gray and I don't understand why I didn't. Maybe I should have let the remover sit longer? However, I am still really pleased with my results. I have yet to make this pattern with just a solid or print fabric, which I still plan to do.
Color remover is used prior to sewing on the sleeve cuffs and neckband (per Angela's demonstration in the video).
If you haven't tried this, you really should...it is so much FUN!
