Isn’t that the battle cry for women everywhere? Every time I say that to my husband he replies with a “Why don’t you buy some clothes?”
Duh! There’s no shops here with anything I like, or fit into (they should have a sign saying “we carry all sizes from 0 to 4.”). Besides, their stuff is outrageously expensive. 40 bucks for a tee? Spare me!
“Why don’t you buy online?”.
Well, because I never know what I am going to get. And deciphering their sizing method? It would be easier to learn Mandarin.
“Sew some then!”
Arrghh! I hate it when my husband uses logic in an argument. It’s so unfair.
Compared to the previous one, this top was a piece of cake. I used some jersey knit from a large lot I bought on eBay a long time ago. For this type of fabric my overcast machine is an absolute necessity.
On the front I stitched a seahorse, a pattern bought from Urban Threads (love them!).
On the back I embroidered another Urban Threads design, a mean-looking octopus. I love the simple stitching and colors. I predict that octopus will keep popping up in other projects.
Here it is in more detail. It has the look of a simple tattoo. And a little secret about me, I really dig tattoos, I just wouldn’t get one for myself. I guess this is second best.
And don’t I totally need a mannequin? Maybe I can borrow Jaboopee’s…
