Throwback Thursday

I was going through my drafts and found this gem. I figured it was worth sharing, since it was one of the first times I had ever tried sewing anything for Mack. Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures. Having a DSLR makes an enormous difference (even with my limited photography skills)!

So after my sister-in-law Karen introduced me to MADE, I decided to try out the 90 minute shirt tutorial. It looked pretty easy, and we have a ton of Nathan's bright red Standard Plumbing Supply t-shirts sitting around so I wasn't worried about wasting the fabric if it totally failed.

It didn't totally fail.

But it did kind of fail.

It was definitely an unwearable garment. Luckily, it didn't completely scare me off of drafting my own patterns for sewing.

This silly little red shirt is tucked away in my scrap box. I'm thinking that maybe someday I'll shorten it a little more and sew a skirt onto it to make it a little dress.

And those red shirts? Yeah, we still have a lot. I used one of his sweatshirts in my Doctor Love look for Project Run and Play a few seasons ago.

Pin It!
