I chose this pattern because this is an easy shirt to construct and takes hardly no time at all! I've had it in my stash for quite a while and it's currently out of print but can be found in different places on the web. I found and a site a called eCrater, here's the link…
The fabric was purchased quite a while ago on one of my first visits to Pennie Fabrics (Textiles). When I first laid my hand on it, I thought it was silk, only to confirm with Nasir (the shops owner) that it's actually a polyester lining, big shocker! This fabric has the feel of a fine silk and has a slight stretch to it as well, along with a soft sheen! It falls along the body like a fine silk too and feels really good! The great part about it being polyester is, I can throw it in the washer and dryer unlike silk!
The color is hard to describe, it's a pastel gray with fine black pinstripes. Here's a close-up of the fabric hope you can see the pinstripes…
All in all this was a quick gratification sew and something I needed to kickstart my sewing mojo again!
Another thing that kickstarted my sewing for this weekend...I was the winner of a mini fabric shopping spree at Fabric Mart care of Nakisha from the Sew Crafty Chemist blog! THANK YOU! I already know what I'm going to make with the fabric I purchase from Fabric Mart!
I feel this is going to be a great year...thanks for stopping by everyone and as always,
