Well, after a crazy week of pattern finalization and previewing of patterns for sale, I have some tutorials and freebies coming up for you. And some selfish sewing for me!
Since I quite my job to do this full time, I have been struggling with casual mom style (is that an oxymoron?) I had dressing like a teacher down, but suit pants, skirts and button ups aren’t cutting it for my new job. Also, I seem to own nothing but fitted t-shirts, and as I haven’t been running (or walking around a classroom all day) and fitted ts aren’t the most flattering at the moment. So I’ve resolved to do some sewing for me.
First up? A baseball t-shirt. I keep stumbling across this pin:
And I have always loved raglans. But I wanted to do a v-neck. Because V-necks are awesome. And I wanted to do some color.
So when I found this t-shirt while thrifting one day, I snatched it up for $2. It’s hard to see, but it has tiny turquoise stripes running through it.
And wouldn’t you know I happened to have a couple yards of jersey the same turquoise color at home?
So I traced out a v-neck raglan pattern, and this is what I came up with.
Yes, it’s just a t-shirt. But skinny jeans and gold flats and maybe I’m approaching Stacy and Clinton’s mom on the go look?
Also, I love this particular color combination (as evidenced here. To which Hubby commented, “You and the kids have the same shirt. Dork.).
|Mental note: Hubby taking shots from the bottom of the stairs makes my legs look loooooong. Must remember for future.|
Come back tomorrow for the tutorial and the FREE PATTERN!
And I will leave you with my favorite picture of me from this shoot. Unfortunately, Tater decided to photobomb.
