The 50¢ Tee

I finally made it into the sewing room and actually sewed something! It was quite exciting, I have to admit. I've been out off my habit for about three months. When I am busy doing other things, I don't miss the sewing room too much. I don't tend to sew over the summer in general because our house is so hot. Add a daily three hour commute and school and there is no time for much else. I'm glad to be finished with that part of school and to be into my internship. It gives me a bit more energy, if not too much more time.

The t-shirt you see in the above photo was made from stretch fabric I bought at a local dance studio's garage sale. They were selling lots and lots of fabric. I really had to control myself! The above piece was just about enough for this shirt and not much else. 

I drafted the pattern from an Old Navy t-shirt that I love and have all but worn out. I still need to add the neck facing and hope to get that on tonight. I get so hot at work because I am always on the go and never sit down that I will probably be wearing t-shirts for quite a while. I may draft a long sleeve version of this pattern for the winter. 

In addition to sewing, I hope to be blogging a bit more now that school has started and we are somewhat settled into our routine. Everyone is doing well. I think I feel better about everyone's school and work situations than I have in a long time! It is nice to feel settled.

We went to that sale too - our dress up bin is full of fairy wings, red capes, santa hats and we have 2 halloween costumes out of the deal! I saw all of that fabric and thought, gee, I wish I could sew. Glad someone can LOL!
