T-Shirts, Patterns and Bargains

What can you say about a T-shirt that hasn't already been said?  They are what they are.  They are also exactly what I need.   I cut out 5 at once, stacked them and sewed them.

I ordered two shirt patterns from Hot Patterns.

Their Great White Shirt and Princess Shirt. 

At one of my recent sewing meetings, I picked up a few old issues of Burda magazine.  They range in years from 1996-2004.  I also scored two pieces of really nice wool fabrics.  There is three yards of a solid, charcoal gray, and three yards of a loosely woven gray with a small black stripe.

It was a pretty good buy at $3.00.

I started cutting out a shirt today, and will continue tomorrow.  I'm playing with the new formatting Blogger offers. The photos  load easier, where you want them instead of having to move them about.  So far, so good.   However, when I hit "Publish", I don't know what I'll get!  We'll see.  I can't find a spell-checker, so hopefully there's no typos.

Thanks for the comment on my top. I know what you mean, this animal print fabric was a poly/lycra knit and it was a mess to sew.

Jean said...
