Woah, where did the week go!
Seriously!? I have no idea where my head has been this week. It's all a blur.
I know I've been sewing, at least for others. That's it! I've been sewing tons of stuff for other people. One thing that's been a real challenge is a friend's wedding dress. I'm tailoring a 50's dress for her and man, it's been a project. Not bad, (love you, Amy!) but a challenge. I'll post more on that once it's complete.
As for this week, I did manage a few tasks that I've put off for a while.
My repro WWII Tuskegee Airman poster came. It's nice, but clearly a print. I'm a bit saddened by that, but I don't think I'll be able to afford a *real* one, so this poster will suffice until that day comes.
As you all know, I wear men's white v-neck t-shirts beneath everything I put on. It's just a good shield of protection for my clothes. A first defense thing, if you will. Anyhow, I was at Target, a place I rarely go, and they were having a sale on men's shirts. 100% cotton, $4 each.

Well hell. How can a gal pass up on that? I wanted to add more color to my clothes, so I picked some colors that I knew I would wear.I have a tendency to buy everything and then donate it after it sits in my closet for a year unworn. NO MORE! I say.
I bought 5 $4 shirts with absolute intention of altering their necklines. I do that for a lot of the t-shirts I wear beneath my dresses. Because, really, who wants to see a men's t beneath a lovely vintage print?
Again, I digress....
I did a scoop neckline and cut away the excess collar. It was then, when I was about to zip-zag all the shirts that I decided to root through my rick-rack to see what I had.
Well, a whole lot of awesomeness is what I had!
They are great for wearing beneath a blouse, which is why I did it. I tend to just get stuck in blouses, jeans and sweaters all week. Sure I make the pants, alter the sweaters and such, but I was feeling frumpy in my rut. I really, really need to make some fitting pants. Again, I digress...
