So the cheesy part of me wanted to start this post with some lame joke about "what's black and white and yellow all over?"....
Meanwhile, the other cheesy side of me is STILL dressing my 'twin' daughter and I up for laughs! Hardy-har.
Yes, I sewed our shirts!
This is my most elaborate/successful sewing project to date (as far as sewing clothing goes)... and I'm still in shock.
My second attempt at sewing jersey knit cotton was way better than the first fiasco.
Now I'm hooked. I jump for jersey.
No pattern (of course), just imagine a long pillowcase from which I:
+ cut out a neck hole and sewed a braided collar on to.
+ cut arm holes and gathered shoulders with a basting stitch.
+ rolled down a waist hem and inserted elastic in to.
+ stitched some stretchy black lace to the bottom edge.
+ and the leftover braid of fabric became an instant headband.
To share this euphoric sense of sewing accomplishment - tomorrow I'll be posting another
super fast. stupid easy sewing project for the fellas in your life.
Wait for it.
Have a great Monday!
Your stripey friend,
