Brown Thread

I had to buy it, brown thread. I didn't have any which might not be surprising if you read my blog. Most things I make are rainbow-coloured. So now I own some brown thread which I used to make myself a shirt. It's from the Antonella pattern by Farbenmix. I don't know how I feel about the fit of the shirt on me. I almost think that no matter what I make myself, I will dislike it. I had to add a bit to the width. and I always add to the length.

The crazy paisley fabric was from Spotlight. I think I paid $3/m. I still have a bit of this fabric left. It's like my knit muslin fabric, so you might see something else out of it. Mollie keeps asking for something out of it as I had previously made myself a t-shirt from Ottobre Deisgn and I think she wants a shirt like mum's.

I enjoyed making the shirt, so I will probably make Moo a couple for summer. Obviously in more girlish fabric.

nice one Sara! Looks great on. I have so much cheap fabric from spotlight, that I think I will be sewing a lot of matching things for me and the girls. I always swore I'de never do it, but I can see it will happen!
