New Shirt

I've started a new project.

This time, it's a shirt (pattern by Rae), tutorial here.

I've never made an item of clothing for myself, unless you count the sweatshirt in eighth grade Home Economics (back in the good ol' days, when they actually called it Home Economics - not Life Sciences or whatever the crap they call it now). Well, and there was the time I was making something that was supposed to resemble a jumper with my mom. I never finished it and it's probably still sitting in her sewing room under stacks of lovely vintage fabric. (Mom, we are SO going through your stash when I get there.)

So anyway, this shirt. I am obsessing about it. I thought about it last night while I was laying in bed. I'm thinking about it now as I should be focused on the last few days of school (which, if I live through without gouging out my eyes, will be a miracle).

I plan on having it finished tonight; stay tuned for pictures!

oooh! Can't wait to see it and hear your review! I desperately need to make some stuff for myself but for some reason "big people clothes" intimidate me.

Crap. By big I mean "adult", just wanted to clarify there because I'm a dork!

Only $19.95 said...

Make me one too!!! Adorable!
