So I could sew bags forever and ever, and bows, too - that's sewing I can do. Sewing that doesn't have the ultimate goal of fitting a body. But for some reason (the fact that there is nowhere to shop for clothes here) I had the urge to try it again, an urge that, when I was 16, ended in jacked up sleeves and frustration the first time it came around. So I began searching for patterns online for a simple, woven tank, and I came across the miracle that is Grainline Stuido.
I used the tiny pocket tank pattern. It was so easy and straightforward. Not only that, but once purchased, the pattern was emailed to me to print out and satisfy my extreme impatience and need for istant gratification. I literally could not have asked for more. I love this shirt, and I loved making it. I even used French seams so there are no raw edges anywhere...okay, not that I had any clue what French seams were before I read through the instructions. But I used them!
I might already be obsessed with this...I'm not going to be, like, drafting my own patterns anytime soon. Ever. But it is really cool to make something that I can wear. I also might have already gone fabric shopping in Albany to make
a million more of these.
