|This giant strawberry is for real, but look at the t-shirt : I made that !|
I got a whim a sunday afternoon at 6 pm to make a t-shirt with some cheap but rad knit I had bought the previous week.
|My favorite shade of blue-grey and fun tears for only 3€/meter|
A quick lurk in my stash of patterns made it clear that I had no readily traced T-shirt pattern that fit(no way I'm tracing from a Burda Style ever again, unless it's a pink one). I had a basic slopper knit for my bust that I made with the help of Suzy Furer, i just needed some sleeves.
|As my weight fluctuates, it's my weight that I put on my patterns and sloppers rather than the date.|
I must say that, sleeves for knits are way easier to draft than sleeves made of woven fabric. I'm still so happy to have been able to make something that fits me to a T.
|Pretty sleeve cap, how I'm proud of you !|
It was by then time for me to go to bed, but the next day, the t-shirt was cut and sewn in no time at all !
|What's with all that strawberries eating !|
I'm also slowly building up my confidence in drafting my own patterns. SLOWLY !
