I will go ahead and admit now, I haven't started any new reading other than the magazines I mentioned yesterday. I'm starting to feel a bit guilty about that. I think one reason I haven't picked up a book in the past two weeks and have stuck to magazines is that they're quick reads.So much has been going on over the past two weeks, that even my knitting is taking a hit. Okay, enough excuses, on with the sewing!
I'm a plus-sized gal. And I'm not talking "I'm a size ten" plus-sized gal. I see so many cute, little bloggers who post pictures of their simple little tops and I wish I had them myself! This past weekend I was determined after seeing a very nice, simple top over at SouleMama's that I fell in love with to find a suitable pattern for my size. I found a pattern and then found the material on sale(!) and made plans to sew everything that needed sewing (I have been putting a stack together) this week.
It just so happened that my car was in for repairs all day Tuesday so I was at home with a stack of projects to work on. I cut out the pattern before Chase went to school, then I set up everything in the dining room to start working.
I've never made a shirt before. I was just a tad bit nervous. All of our hand sewn pajama bottoms my Mom has made us (it's always been easier to send her the thread and the fabric).
I love this pattern. And I love my shirt! I think that the next one I will make a bit longer, but in the end, I love it so much.
The stack of denim? Those are Chase's pants that have holes in the knees. We're so close to spring weather and shorts all of the time, but a few pairs of jeans need patching. Done!
I didn't sew as much as I had planned, but that just means I have more projects for next week.
