What to do When There’s Nothing to Wear
I needed to do laundry.
I didn’t want to.
So I got up, and sewed myself a shirt. Finished it before 8:30, too. 8:30’s not too bad to get dressed at.
Once again, it’s a pattern I’ve used before: Simplicity 4076 View F.
The shape of the pattern pieces, in order to get that twist front, is rather interesting. There’s a front and a back; the back is one piece, the front, two identical pieces.
The front is the one on the left. You sew big L-shaped chunk taken out of it closed on one piece, but leave a hole in the center. The narrow part of the second piece is then passed through the hole, and then sewn together itself.
See? Cool construction. And I have another shirt!
Now I better go do my laundry.
