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.

If I’m corporate Barbie which Barbie are you?
