This last week has been completely draining- mentally and emotionally which has meant a bit of a blog hiatus and a bit of a crafting break too. Work has been all consuming, then my car gave up the ghost and the little thing I had removed from my face turned out to be a squamous cell carcinoma so I had to go back in to the clinic to have it all cut out leaving me with 3 stitches on the side of my head.
As you can imagine I was well in need of some therapeutic crafting so I decided to lock myself in the craft room and make a shirt I've been planning for months. I've had the material sittting there waiting for me to transform it for a year I reckon!
I was so gosh darned proud of my effort. It’s Simplicity pattern 2807 – one of their Project Runway ones. I’ve made a few of my own alterations which look great considering it’s the first shirt I’ve ever made! It still needs a good press and some buttons.
Everything was going smoothly until I tried it on and realised that I have sewn the sleeves on INSIDE OUT!!!!
So, tonight will be spent doing some therapeutic unpicking….
