I did a 13 hours workday yesterday...
the kiln is on and I can´t open it before tomorrow morning...
so it´s a day off with my new BF...a Pfaff Hobbylock 2.0
the shirt
( it´s too small or I´m too big :)
 the plan
 other materials : old shirts - laces - thread
 the sewing test 
 ( threading took 30 minutes ?! maybe it´s not so bad from a beginner )
 the first brave cut...there´s no way back !
 first layout
 looks good to me
adding a size...or two...or three
 not bad
 can´t keep it simple...must add another lace too...
brave cut Nr. 2
 the colors look awful on the photos...but I really
shouldn´t complain : it was such a sunny day 
and I was sewing beside the kitchen window...
so try to imagine the retro 70´s custard yellow with grays and black
 O-la-la...I love it !
 the last layer is sheer organza from a old dress
it´s almost ready...

should I do something with the neckline...
maybe I´m going to crochet a narrow lace around...or not...hmmm...

I have to sleep on it...

  1. Hi Sissy !
    Very nice, I love it !

  2. thanks Anne! This is my very first creation and it is really comfortable to wear...maybe not in a restaurant but in the studio or at home. Next time I´ll try to sew on the wrong side of the shirt :)

  3. It looks great! Love the design elements :)

  4. Very sweet I really like it. Maybe I should hang on to the shirts I just shrank in the dryer :(

  5. Sissy - that is wonderful - I love the different patterns and textures you used. You are VERY creative, I am not quite so, it's fun to watch you do these original things so well! Tina
