It's Monday, but fuck it, lets look at some purdy shit!
|Found this shirt in the Girls dept. at Old Navy. I bought the biggest size (XL) but it was still too small.|
|Red line indicates the changes: Crew neck was cut out and changed to "peasant" style with adjustable ribbon drawstring. Side seams were added to reduce the waist and add curves in the right places.|
|En Voila! After the scoop neck & keyhole are cut, all edges are finished with a zig-zag. Keyhole edge is turned back approx. 1/4" then sewn with a straight stitch about 1/4" from the folded edge. Next, neckline is turned back approx 5/8" and sewn with a straight stitch about 1/2" from the folded edge. This forms the channel for the drawstring, which is threaded through and ties at the CF keyhole. Approx. 4" total was removed at the waist area through the side seams to give a bust-waist-hip ratio instead of one big tube shape.|
|3 Paches created on the sewing machine with various neon threads. The patch at the top is made from a scrap of black corset coutil. The 2 at the bottom are made from denim scraps. All are edged with a zig-zag stitch to encase the raw edges.|
|Fun Fact: If I'm in a meeting and appear to be taking detailed notes, there's a 90% chance that I'm probably sketching up a new project or doodling something cute, like this....Yay, Kitties!|
|This patch is for my sister. Her nickname her whole life has been "Kiki" Ain't she LUCKY!?|
