I’m expanding my homemade wardrobe, and I love it.
This shirt i started making not long after Hubby and I got married, 4 years ago. I learned to sew as a teen, but after leaving the house, I didn’t get my own sewing machine until I was married. I knew some, but I wasn’t very good. I cut out the pieces for thus shirt, got to step one of sewing and gave up, because something didn’t work. I don’t remember, but I think it’s that I didn’t know how to sew knit fabric. I pulled it all out again and finished it up in a few hours, almost without a hitch. I’m glad to know that my skills have expanded over the years.
This was fun to make because I just made it up as I went. nothing fancy at all. I’ll have to write up a tutorial for this. It seems to be my favorite shirt right now, but the weight of the fabric is best for fall weather. I like the color as well. It’s exciting having a hand full of homemade shirts in my closet. Now if I could learn to make my own pants.
