Type of item: Clothing
I recycled a toddler sized shirt.
What was your inspiration?
I can no longer purchase this style of t-shirt. Now that I am sewing again I can make them myself. I deconstructed one of Reggie's old shirts in order to make a pattern. My first attempt (a red shirt I'll also share here) was too snug so I re-sized the pattern and this time I was successful. This style shirt normally retails for $15 to $20. Mine cost me about $1 to make.
I sewed this on a new-to-me Kenmore 1753 that I picked up on Craigslist for $15. It is in awesome condition and came with all the original accessories including the pattern cams, button holer and chain stitch attachment. Squee!
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to re-size the pattern to make it fit correctly. I still haven't had a chance to take that online couture dressmaking course I signed up for. Need to get on that.
