Jalie 2805

This bird and my dog are not getting along.  We found out yesterday she has a baby that is big, but still can not fly yet.  Since we have been calling the dog away from her bush, she has allowed us to be in our backyard.  We've been copying Rick and Betty (Betty's Kitchen on You Tube) for a little raised garden.  It's been lots of fun.
This year we have a tremendous amount of squirrels, birds, rabbits, and bug life in our neighborhood.

 My pictures loaded up in the wrong order.  This is the hem.  The 960Q Viking has 2 3 step zz's.  This is the smallest one.  I usually serge and do some sort of sewing machine hem, but I was trying this pattern out for the very first time, and just ironed the jersey up and stitched.  I would have loved a loopy jersey stitch, but didn't have the energy to put white thread into my Bernina 930.  And as you see, the hem stitch on the Viking might be a little too heavy for the knit.  It would be nice to use the one machine for everything if I choose too.  I'm hoping they add in a jersey stitch to be loaded into the machine as an added stitch.
 The shirt in flat form.
 Back and front.  I used the V neck and the cap sleeves.  I wanted some extra fabric for the same shirt but with longer lace sleeves.  I was hoping it was a size too big, but it was perfect.
