So, I won't give up sewing fun and EASY garments in the meantime. The Pinheads started on Pamela's Perfect T pattern but I was still on the jacket so it didn't happen for me. Good thing too since it appears the shirt is made for a more mature or "Real" figure (insert immature joke here;). I'm going to try the Jalie t-shirt pattern that I've had for some time. The HotPatterns t-shirt works well but does require a bit of adjustment for me. It has become my TNT but you know, how is it I can't leave well-enough alone? I end up having to add about 3" to the top and an inch to the sleeves (short-sleeve version) to make it work for me. Also, I add a 1/2 FBA at the side seams.
I haven't abandoned my Spring SWAP but am trying to keep this steam engine rolling. Sometimes life has a way of getting in the way and derailing well laid plans. Here's the plan as follows:
1. Finish that darn jacket
2. Start on a couple of t-shirts with interesting details like these- (photos anntaylor loft and jcrew respectively)
Short shorts are going to be all the rage this season. I think they were last seen on my body as of 1999. Spider veins took over and now it's best to keep the gams covered.
My hubby still wants his shirts I promised him a few 6 months ago. He's not very patient;) That will be after I start and finish a few other of my selfish projects.
Now that I'm working part-time again I hope to actually have time to finish many items. Stay tuned.
