Sometimes I complete a sew and I love it. Sometimes I complete a project and it’s just MEH.
This is a MEH. While cleaning my fabric storage area, I came across the navy rib knit, all cut out. I started it as a school shirt for my grade 7 son.
I don’t have any idea what pattern I used. The sleeves are a good length. The shirt part, front and back, was about a foot short!
Crop shirts for boys/men are def NOT trending at this time!
I am pleased with my brilliant idea to add a colour block band. Actually, in hindsight, maybe it was someone else’s idea as I complained a lot about it. Will the blue colour run into the white? I’m excited to find out. Weird, but true.
I top stitched the whole thing in white. I LOVE top stitching! I love the look of it. But I feel like on this project it should have been narrower.
Lastly, I’m really disappointed with the way the sleeves bell out at the end. So disappointed, I might rip out the hem, and add cuffs.
In conclusion, I just wasn’t feeling this project. I just wanted it done. I rushed. I’m never happy with rushed projects. I probably should have just put it back in the basement and made something else for his turn to get something “made by Mommy”.
Next up, fast easy leggings for my lil gurl. Hopefully. Fast. Hopefully. Easy.
