I made a tee-shirt and a pair of pants for the first time. The v neck tee-shirt when together pretty quick and fit like a dream. I want to make a whole closet of them.
I'd never made a pair of pants before and I had to rip out half the seams because I kept getting everything backwards. I made them out of grey flannel and they are big and baggy, ugly as homemade soap. However they are the most comfortable thing in the world, like soft little warm clouds.
I think that flannel is an under appreciated fabric and if I ever had my own clothing line it would be all clothes made out of flannel for the winter, but some how sneakily look like regular day clothes, not pajamas. With my Day Flannel collection you could go to the market and run errands and not have people snark at you for wearing pajamas in public. Just a thought. :-)
JoAnne's is had a 99 cent sale on patterns and I bought five. Dangerous, I know.
WonderCon is coming up and the boy and friends are going as a Steampunk airship crew. Perhaps I should make a costume for myself. What do you think? :-)
What creative mischief are you managing this month?
