This weekend I attended a sewing course here in the small town where I live. I meat some fantastic and inspiring people. I started sewing a blouse for spring and a casual dress for my daughter. I also cut many meters of bias binding. I hope to meet the people from the course again soon. It’s really fun sewing together with others.
I need some t-shirts and it’s really fast to sew one when you have a pattern that you like. I really like the site Its always autumn! So much inspiration and tutorials. And one of my favourite t-shirt pattern is her easy tee. And of course I wanted to try it with the Peter Pan collar.
I used some black and white jersey I had and bought half a meter black for the collar and sleeves. The fabric was making me dizzy while I was cutting it because of the really narrow stripes, but I think it’s ok on the finished tee.
I made the neck opening smaller and also made the neckband visible over the Color. It’s hemmed with a twin needle.
So, I have committed to not buying any clothes for myself throughout 2018. And I am so excited to get started! I\m really hoping to improve my sewing skills, but also to get away from the way we tend to think about consumption. We can still buy underwear, shoes and accessories. And it’s going to be so much fun! Hope you will follow me on this journey, and even join in… If you are interested read more over at Goodbye Valentino.
