I love Doctor Who. I made a shirt. It has space on it. David Tennant, the 10th Doctor, describes space:
“Actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, its more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.”
The fabric is Galaxy Poly Chiffon Digital Panel Print from Mood Fabrics. It is 59" wide, and when I ordered it, it was listed as being 23" long, although I don't see that now. The panel was cut all wibbly wobbly so it took me a long timey wimey to figure out how I would get the pattern pieces to fit correctly without losing length - it barely fit!
The pattern I used is for the very simple kimono sleeve tee in Simplicity 1690. I've made it twice before, in floral chiffon and chevron knit. Both of these have found a new home, as they didn't quite fit right (too short/tight at the hips and too wide at the shoulders, respectively).
This fabric is quite sheer, as you can see in the photo below. I serged all the seams for a clean finish, and serged and topstitched the neckline, hem, and sleeves. This is the same method I used for the floral version and it worked out very well.
For the print placement, I wanted the main galaxy going across horizontally. I also wanted it to wrap around the side. When I laid out the pattern pieces (there are only two!) I tried to get as much of the print as possible at the side seam.
