Wardrobe Wednesday and Make My Week #26

You remember I bought some fabric (very naughty!) recently. One of the pieces was a gorgeous piece of Japanese lawn that I have been using for my new header and buttons on my blogspot blog CreateHopeInspire.

I didn’t buy very much of it. I had an idea in my head to make a very simple over-sized t-shirt to wear with my high-waisted skirt.

Nin suggested I do french seams and gave me tips for using bias binding to face the neck and armholes. I love having a friend who is a ‘qualified designer’.  Whenever I have questions about fabric or how I should sew something together. I did so french seams (my first time ever) and used the system Nin suggested but with knicker elastic instead of bias binding.

I used a pattern I found at an op-shop the other day. It’s amazing how a little styling can make a difference don’t you think??

I quite like the ‘Corporate Barbie’ look now and again.
