Remember me saying I was making shirts for Rob and me? Well, I finally got pictures of them. We are both wearing them today. Yea, Friday!
Rob's is pretty tropical and as soon as he saw the fabric, I knew it was exactly what he wanted. It was a booger to match the pocket on and I ended up having to piece the pocket to get it to exactly match the front of the shirt. I'm all about invisible pockets on shirts.
Here's me in my shirt. I'm pretty sure that I'll be cutting out the side seams and taking some of the size out of it. It came out huge without me noticing until this morning. Now, I know I've put this shirt on before and even though I've lost a little weight in the last week, it's not enough to make this difference. Unfortunately, the large size runs all the way up the collar, so it will never be exactly right and I'm going to launder the shirt before I take scissors to it to see if it shrinks any little bit (doubt it since the fabric was prewashed and dried). But, I like it and will wear it even if it is too big.
I've started my list of stuff that needs to get done this weekend. And, of course, there's too much. But, I'm going to make sure I get in a trip to JoAnn's, even if I just buy thread. I earned a $10 gift card last week and I refuse to let it go to waste. I don't need fabric and JoAnn's doesn't sell extra sewing time, which is what I really need, but I still won't let that free money go to waste.
Everybody take care. Even though I only worked yesterday and today, I'm looking forward to the weekend. I need some family time and now that I can eat again, bring it on!
