I am really enjoying the versatility of this pattern... just like I did with Colette's Laurel, I am planning on multiple versions. This one is a sweater knit with poly crinkle chiffon at the hem.
I changed the hem of the tee to a high-low one, and the chiffon is just a rectangle the width of the fabric and about 8" tall. I folded it over to create the two layers, and hemmed it by folding the edge up by about 1/2", then doing a small zigzag over the fold and trimming the excess fabric. I'm very pleased with this method (which, fingers crossed, is holding secure so far) because it didn't interfere as much with the drape of the fabric as all of the other methods I tried. Plus, it was relatively quick - I had no interest in spending hours hemming. I gathered the rectangle to fit the sweater hem, basted it in, and then secured the two together while hemming with a double needle.
Other than that, the only changes I made from last time were my forward shoulder adjustment (which worked, YAY), and sewing the neckline with the prescribed 5/8" SA for a narrower binding. I still used 3/8" SAs for the rest of the tee, since this sweater knit has very little stretch and I needed the extra room.
This shirt helps to fill the gap in my wardrobe for long sleeved items to wear with pants; with the frigid weather we've been having in NY, tights just have not been cutting it and my clothing options have shrunk considerably. So pleased to add this to the rotation!
