Metallic Knit Simplicity 4076


My second piece in the designer-inspired collection is my old faithful Simplicity 4076, made many times on this blog.  I went with this one for a couple of reasons

The fabric is Mood Fabric's Gray Metallic Knit



  • I love the fit and the style
  • the interesting neckline feature, something in the Tracy Reese designs



I use a small width of fabric, which is doubled for the binding.  Most of the time on my binding, I like to add a row of stitching with my coverstitch machine.  It just adds a finishing touch, but I do not do that with this pattern.  That row of stitching flattens out the gathers too much


This is such a great pattern and the metallic knit just steps the t-shirt up a notch

  2. Lori, I bought a gold metallic from Mood two years ago that I love. However, it was rather thin and I normally wear a cami underneath. Does this knit have a little more body to it or is it somewhat thin?
