I have been absent. I have been busy. I have not really been sewing :( But between the overtime I've been putting in for my job and all my social obligations, I've managed to knock together this project. It only took me like... A month. Enjoy!
|I've had this shirt for a while. You may remember it from my inaugural serger post! I realized I don't hardly wear it because I really don't like the neckline. It's too close to a turtleneck for me and turtlenecks make me feel like I'm choking.|
|Like, this is the chest. And these two tiny pockets are right next to each other. Whaaattt.|
|So I picked off the weird shoulder roll tabs and the bizarre front pockets. I then cut the green top off under the arms and pinned it at where I wanted the high point to be in the front|
|Then I pinned it at the low point in the back|
|I folded the shirt in half and cut from the high mark in front down to the low mark in back|
|And then using some kind of intelligence, did the same with the green part, using the cut off from the gem shirt as a guide|
|Pinned right sides together, sewed, and serged|
|Tah dah! No, it's not crooked. I tried it on myself and it's perfectly straight. I have no idea why it looks so lopsided on Addie.|
|And the back!|
|Side, where you can see the transition from high to low!|
Once I run it though the wash, it should be smoothed out and ready for my high-fashion life!
