Burnout Kristen Kimono Tee

Kristen Kimono Tee v2 on camisole solo

Tips and tricks

The second time I made this top, I used a very light weight Poly/Rayon burnout knit. I tried all short of stitches, tensions, width, length... But what worked best was to use tissues paper between my fabric and the feed dogs ; So much easier! Else, my fabric got sunk below the sewing machine plate and removing it either distorted or punctured it. It was also harder to cut, but I manage with my pattern weights and rotary cutter again!

Sew with the stem stitch

Ripping the tissue paper is easy afterward.
Then finish the edge like you prefer
