Another Shirt I Can't Wear Anywhere




Oh look! I used the same pattern from the purple shirt and made a fancy one out of glittery fabric, which drops glitter everywhere I go. Did I mention this cost $7, compared to similar glittery shirts that fancy stores sell for exorbitant sums of money? So if you see me at a Christmas party, this is what I'll be wearing (plus a little lipstick hopefully, and there'll be a pile of glitter around me; and if I hug you please forgive the glitter I'll leave on your outfit.)

And yes, that's a personalized tag my sister gave me years ago to put in all my clothes. That way if I give them away to the Goodwill someone can look me up in the phone book and call to complain about all the unfinished seams. Nice! But really, it did impress the hell out of my in-laws when they saw that.

Now I LOVE that shirt! Can you make me one?

Sister said...

Yes, now do you want the same fabric or one of your own choosing? Of course I must have measurements, and I prefer to do a fitting in person before stitching side seams and of course the hem. We could get this together to try on for the campout! The campsite has electrical outlets - I'll bring my machine! "Y'all go on and climb the mountain, I'll just stay here at the sweatshop (sweat-tent)!"

I like that fabric if you have some left over. If not, we'll pick something else out but I have no idea where to look in Hancock....

Sister said...

don't have any left over - I can order some more off fabric.com or you can pick out something you like at Hancock - "fashion" or "apparel" section - make sure it's a knit (little stretchy)! Don't buy any till you email me measurements so we know how much to get.
