So I made the first of my sewing projects! Wanna see?
This is very basic t-shirt surgery but I cut down one of Keen's ringer tees into this:
It was my practice piece. See if a project takes more than a couple of hours I'm probably not going to do it, because I've realized I can only break my life down into two hour segments, tops. Just reality. Anyway, the tee was a little stained (with one particular mark right on the nipple!) so I wrote the first stanza to one of my favorite poems, The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock, across the front and one additional line across the lower back. I like the back lower than the front effect, it makes it all swoopy. It came out pretty cute, huh?
This was another experiment… that came out very, very wrong. Theoretically it looks like it would be cute right?
Until you see where I sewed the top half on inside out! And the back waist gathering is pretty much a hideous mess. As soon as you put it on it screams bad home ec. That's what I get for trying to remember skills I learned as a high school freshman. What is this thing you call patterns?
I'm tempted to try and redo it… but I'm not holding out any great hope.
