What’s a girl to do when she wants to sew in the New Year but has eaten ALL the mince pies over Christmas? I have to admit I was feeling a bit reluctant about getting back to sewing knowing that my tummy was a little bigger than my usual measurements. Feeling that it is easier to burn off a couple of Christmas kilos than refit all my patterns however, I’m going to go back to trusty Michelle Bridges 12wbt to get myself back on track with my fitness this year. Don’t fear that this blog is going to go all health and fitness freaky any time soon though, the only gym stories you’ll see here will be like the time I managed to send a fit ball bouncing on to a bunch of people doing crunches and stretches on the floor – true story!!
In the meantime however I thought an appropriate project would be finishing this T-shirt WIP that I started late last year.
I bought two 75 cm lots of this poly knit fabric at Cleggs (one in this chartreuse colour and another in teal) because I love the 3-dimensional texture and thought it would be perfect for the kimono tee pattern I made back when I started my blog. I added a few cm to the length of the pattern because the last one came out a little short and I’m really happy with it now! It’s a flattering shape and I feel really comfortable wearing it despite not feeling my best, definitely more of these to come, but in the meantime I must get back to my summer sewing plan….
