A coffee drinking refashion. Seriously. How perfect is that?
This sleeveless top, much worn and much loved (with the right undergarments it made me look a fair bit bigger than the 'A' the good Lord decided to make me), was taken in at the sides last summer in -- I confess here -- a rather slipshod fashion with the result being armholes that were too tight. In to the tub it went. So it would be more season-spanning I'd assigned it to the 'Add/subtract sleeves pile' and already chose some scraps for the sleeves, though not the length of said new sleeves.
And now I have a coffee drinkin' refashion. The bod may be improving with diet and exercise, but my personal modesty level is going up so this is just for the kitchen and sunroom now -- or for dashing out to the back garden to fill the bird feeders. Since stitching on a pair of roomy arms harvested from a Qantas First sleep suit took no time at all, I made some coffee and put the
in the washing machine. Why these three? Got too much grey stuff to refashion and no more black, the purple top has bleach (?) stains and the XXL T-shirt in pink is part of that dress fail I published the other day and I've had enough of that pink. I'm quite fond of the all in one machine dye sold at my local supermarket (denim blue and black only) so when I see it on offer I think 'I should get that for future projects, shouldn't I?'.
That would be why there are 2 still in the laundry and dye supply box. Sigh. Perhaps it's too much coffee. Luckily they don't seem to have a best by date and I have a couple pair of black jeans in the denim tub (next on the list). Dye results in my next post!
