I went on a bit of a "fabric bender" this past weekend. I kept thinking of different things to sew and before I knew it, the weekend was over, I had 3 new tank tops, a set of pajamas, a finger injury and a serious fabric hangover... (haha)
I made a pattern from a tank I own. The fabric is from a set of T-shirt sheets I bought for this purpose. I dyed it after it was sewn.
Same pattern, same fabric but not dyed.
I made the top of my new jammies from an old t-shirt that was too wide and too short. The straps are fed through casings and sewn in a loop. The shorts are from the sheets I bought for fabric. I didn't have a pattern for them, but I used the schematics from a knitting pattern I had (from Interweave Knits Summer 2005).
Reconstructed from a white t-shirt I never wore. The straps are fed through a casing at the top and sewn, not tied. I dyed it as an experiment (I didn't mix up the dye at all) and I like the results. The back, however, seems to be trying to send a message or something:
I don't know if you can see it clearly there, but there's a very clear skull on the back, which was completely unintentional...
A few more details and the story of the finger injury (a cautionary tale?) on my blog
