I Took the Day Off Work

I took the day off work to clean my house. But first I decided to finish the shirt I had been working on. (Crossing off an item on my To Do list always makes me happy!)

I didn't have much to do on it. I had mentioned in an earlier post I was making this. Well I made it like the picture on the pattern, but I didn't like it on me and it was uncomfortable. I decided a to gather the front part of the shirt and leave the back alone. I added a ribbon on the front and it ties in the back.


I like this so much better! I love this fabric and plan on making a skirt with this too, although I won't wear them together.

Well I better get busy cleaning!

Be back soon!

MOTHER. You've got some splainin' to do.

You see, I have these really soft and pretty shabby chic sheets- they are light blue with deep pink flowers on them- but I can only seem to one of the sheets (the other is conveniently missing). In fact, the fabric looks very similar to your new shirt's fabric.

So tell me, Mother, where did you come upon this fabric for your shirt? WHERE???? So help me if that was my other sheet.... *shaking my fist at you*
