Remember this fabric from Sunday Stash?
Ta da! I have actually managed to make myself an article of clothing!
And I've even worn it out and it didn't fall apart! And nobody seemed to be pointing and laughing at the bad "homemade-ness" of it! I'll admit I did secretly wish that someone might stop me and ask where I got it from so that I could modestly exclaim,
"oh! This? I MADE IT MYSELF!!!!!!"
and then bask in the glory that would be their utter astonishment that I had made such a beautiful ... sorry. I shall snap out of that right now.
I got the hot tip on this pattern from the Tessuti blog and had to order it in from Canada.
(sorry, bad photo)
I know it says "easy-to-sew" up the top there but it certainly challenged my basic sewing skills. Darts, waistbands and pockets *shudder*. Luckily this version did not require a zip. I'm working my way slowly up to that world of scariness!
