To get it out of the way – there’s still not enough sewing happening around here. Some … occasionally. Like this t-shirt.
Please to forgive the horribly overexposed photo … the sun had long left the balcony and wandered over to the other side of the house (it was in fact near 8pm when I took the photo, and that’s the east-facing balcony), but She was still too bright for my shoddy little camera.
Not a lot to say – my self-made t-shirt sloper, with Laurel-style sleeves this time. I’ve also added a band as finishing to the seam, which I quite like. This one is just a tad too short to be perfect.
When I sewed this one up, using some jersey I bought in Walthamstow, I made another one from some black double knit. I love it to bits – it came out with this peculiar look of a well-loved but miraculously shiny new shirt to it. Since She, The Sun, was so bright, I didn’t even attempt to get a shot. You’ll see it in time, I’m sure.
In other news – my little gardening efforts are going well so far. The greenflies are eating up the roses, which does annoy me – but in all honesty, if that means they stay off my tomatoes, I’m down. Sorry, roses. I still try to help you!
If you have no love for plants at all, you should resume your regularly scheduled blog surfing now. Otherwise, prepare for an onslaught of green:
