Because it's Thursday



And I wanted to make a shirt. I henceforth declare June 7th to be make-a-new-shirt-day. Time to celebrate!

I sew a lot like I cook. No recipes. No patterns. Fly by the seat of my pants. So I'm actually surprised I ended up with something wearable. Now it's not the most wonderfully constructed shirt, but I listened to my inner Tim Gunn and made it work. It has a zipper (in the back) and fits me like a glove.


If you're looking into sewing, I recommend not following my methods. Not unless you want to become BFFs with the seam ripper. You could head on over to my mom's blog, Studio Adventures, or try A Spoonful of Sugar. They are exponentially more adept at both sewing and instructing others to sew than I.
