When Marisa Lynch and I saw this lace/striped shirt, we thought, oh yeah, that's totally cute and very do-able. A quick and easy splice and sew project- we just happened to have two shirts that my dear friends Phoebe (stripes) and Gail (lace) had given me, project-ready. Thanks to all my buddies that made these two awesome shirts possible.
|Gail's Lace Shirt|
|Phoebe's Striped Shirt|
|Trying to figure out how to dice it up to maximize the fabric.|
|Snip Snip, scalloped along the edge of the lace under the chest, leaving enough for another bottom. |
All sewed with a zig-zag stitch on the machine. It took 15 minutes to sew both shirts!
|The first, long-sleeved, more substantial shirt.|
|And the shirt with the smaller leftover pieces.|
|Perfectly half and half, we wasted not a thread.|
|With pops of red, they really look nautical yet sort of Frenchy, non?|
|Marisa is such a spazz.- too much caffeine, girl!|
|Soooo tired after all that sewing! Let's take a nap.|
