Okies I decided to re-con a t-shirt for "beach day" at church. We're decorating it in beach stuff and suppsoed to wear beach clothes. it's going to be fun.
however I have no beach clothes. I haven't been to the beach since I was little. So I have no idea what this means. And that means asking hubby over and over again to go through my wardrobe and help me out.
So I decided to re-con a t-shirt into a halter top. Seemed easy enough. I picked out a tee that as to tight in the sleeves and figured it would be easy to tranform from tube top to halter top. At walmart otday buying ribbon for the halter tie I saw this cute yellow cotton that matcehd the yellow in the butterfly on the front of the tee so I bought it. I got home started cutting yeah tube top! It fits and I actually cut my shirt straight! Score 1! hjubby measured my hips and my boobs so I could edge the shirt with yellow fabric. I cut my fabric and proceded to spend three hours sewing. Upon finishing I attempt to try on finished shirt. Unfortunetly this is here I realize that I bought a non strechy knit cotton it's stiff and doesnt strech and my hips are more narrow than noy boobs so I can't get the thing over my boobs to try it on.
Yeah I should know about mixing fabrics by now. I'm not a big time newbie. My mom has lectured me on this ovcer and over. But I didn't read the decription of the fabric and here I am. With one totally cute shirt that I cannot wear. I can probably salvage the shirt with a zipper or something but it's jsut frustrating becasue now it's midnight and all I have to wear tommarrow is a pair of cut off jeans. GRRRRR.
I will save the shirt buy a zipper at some point and try to fix it. But still .GRRRRR>
