I actually used my sewing machine

I’m really falling apart over here :) I can’t find the charger to my camera. Quite frankly. I can’t find my camera. So, my first trip to the sewing machine in a month is chronicled with a camera phone picture of garment on the table. Better than the floor, eh?

I generally don’t wear standard issue, boxy tee shirts. I don’t look good in them since my best feature is my waist to hip ratio. And, I get a LOT of tee shirts. I’m not comfortable sleeping in them and I don’t love them for the gym (when I go).  For a while I just started turning them down. For a bit I thought about a tee shirt quilt for all the sorority and work shirts. But, after this — I’m just gonna refashion them.

I had this BWOF tee traced out for about a year. It took me less than an hour from start to finish to make this. To be fair, I didn’t iron/press, I didn’t make a seam allowance and I whipped it up on the serger — with brown thread. Hey, what can I say. It’s 10 at night and I have to be at said festival at 7:00 a.m. all day for two days.

I specifically asked for an extra large shirt and managed to cut the front, back and sleeves from it. But, I had to take an old (and I mean at least five years old) red Volvo Ocean Cup staff tee shirt for the waist, collar and sleeve bands. I’ll try to get a photo in it tomorrow :)
