I don’t usually make my own clothes. However, at Fibreswest in October this year in Northam , Western Australia, the “garage sale” yielded some beautiful fabrics. i got two metres of a gorgeous knit for A$5.
Tonight seemed like a good night to sew. My grandson Tobias and his friend Lachlan, having been fed with a smorgasbord of taco ingredients and then going full on into their Xbox One games, encouraged me to do something for me. They hoped it would stop me sneering at the games!
I unpicked a cotton T-shirt which had seen better days**. This gave me a pattern for a top, once I’d added some extra drape and modified the neckline.
** Actually, the cotton content is in doubt. The T-shirt was on the discard pile because it sustained a “hole” from a hot iron. This is not behaviour usually seen in a cotton fabric!
Anyway, here is the result:
Well done Margaret. Looks great. May be the next one will be your own dyed or printed fabric. ONE DAY I will get and do that too! I’ve been saying it for long enough!
