So the sewing bug has bitten and it has bitten hard! My once pristine dining table has turned into a swamp of sewing machines (yes, somehow there is 2 in my living room right now), fabric, elastic and random other haberdashery items. Since inheriting the beast that is the Brother Super Galaxie, I’ve attempted a dress (in the most hideous fabric that I now can’t bring myself to wear) and now a t-shirt. Neither of these items were made with patterns and that could well be the reason for my mixed success rate, either that or my decidedly average-yet improving sewing skills!
So I had a cotton on t-shirt that I loved except ideally it would have been longer, and upon inspection looked like a project I could handle as it is basically a giant rectangle with no sleeves! Winning. So I traced it out onto my fabric and simply stitched the seams together. Now I should have pinned the bottom hem as something funky happened there but just don’t look too close and it’s ok. I attempted some homemade bias binding for a neat finish around the arm holes and neckline and it looks actually really good! Sure my seam allowances were a bit all over the show but at least they are straight haha.
Next up, a matching dress for Charlotte so I can make some embarrassing family photos oooooooooooh yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!
