No, not Jersey Shore, a jersey shirt. I used Simplicity 3692 for the pattern. It's a Built By Wendy pattern, and I love anything Built by Wendy. It's specifically for knits/jersey fabric. This fabric was bought from the red tag (sale) bin at Joann's several months ago.
It turned out pretty big. This goes back to my issues with patterns and how I always cut out a size 8 when I should be cutting a 6 or 4. At least I am not cutting out patterns as a size 12 anymore.
|If only I could walk around all day with my hands in the back pulling the |
excess fabric to the back to make me look slimmer.
|Science smience, headless me looks good!|
|Signature slimming moves, turn sideways and put your hands on your hips.|
|Even I am not sure?|
|Please excuse the wrinkles.|
The sleeves turned out to be rather large as well. I feel kind of like I have Oprah arms. That's a real saying apparently. Guess I didn't make it up.
|Excuse the face, oy.|
Whenever I think of Oprah I can't help but yell: "You're getting a Caaaaaaaaaar!"
|And the audience goes wild!|
|Merely scraps. Blurry scraps at that.|
I think I might wear it on Friday to work with a nice pair of jeans. Friday is causal day, and also will be the end of my pink/red clothes wearing phase in honor of Valentine's Day.
