Thursday - run downstairs during nap time and sew as many seams as possible before one of the two kiddos starts to scream
Friday - repeat
Weekend - Hurrah! Ben's home! And hopefully I can carve out some uninterrupted time to finish a project.
This new shirt is the T-Shirt With Pleats top by Salme Patterns. I love the simplicity of the look with the pleats down the front but I wish that the top were a bit longer. I could live with this length though but what I really don't like is that the pattern calls for a light, slightly sheer fabric and yet the neck is finished with a facing. If I were a smarter stichter I could have realized that a neck facing on a slightly sheer fabric does not equal a good look, but unfortunately I am not a smarter sticher and now I feel that the facing is glaring at me every time I look in the mirror. Grrrr. That said I do think that I'll give this top a try again, making it a bit longer the second go around and finishing the neckline with a bias binding rather than a facing.
|Ooops. Perhaps I should make sure that the shirt is not all bunched up next time.|
