Mama sized

Yes, I've made myself a shirt. It looks like a Farbenmix Antonella, but it's actually an Ottobre pattern where I've divided the sleeves to mimic the Antonella. I own the Farbenmix pattern, but I like the fit of Ottobre tee's on me. The pattern is from Ottobre Woman 02/06, #2 t-shirt. The fabric is cotton/spandex knit in blood red from my fave Australian manufacturer and the sleeves are Hilco knits.
T-shirt for me

And some joyous news. The coffee machine is back home, and the repair cost was reasonable! Hooray!

Thank goodness is all I can say. I seriously need the caffeine to power through this week.

I love this Sara, it looks lovely on you.

I would totally have thought it was an Antonella! How pretty! btw - you are not the first person who's mentioned that they didn't like the fit of that -- I'm wondering if I should just toss my pattern!

And you haven't posted a photo of yourself in ages -- isn't that a new hair color? I love it!

Sara great top and I am so glad the coffee machine made it back

Oh! Lovely! I really like that solid together with the patterned arms. And, as someone else said, I would definitely have thought it was an Antonella.

Now you inspired me to make something nice for myself... It has really been ages since..

Sara that is an absolutely amazing top! The colours are just perfect, just the sort of thing I would wear - I'm not one for black either :) Gosh, Moo is the spitting image of you!

My DD is at Northside Montessori :)

I love this top - the way you've done the sleeves looks great.
I always plan to sew for me but never get there.
Any plans to market mummy shirts???
