I don’t sew for myself

Can you relate?
Joanna mentioned recently that she was going to make her summer wardrode.
I’m not that ambitious.
But I did make myself a shirt yesterday!

Weekend Sewing Summer Blouse

It’s the Summer Blouse from Weekend Sewing.
The book has been all over the internet –
I’m just behind the times.


 For me (in Arizona)  this will likely be a winter shirt!
Fabric:  An Echino Double Gauze Print
I have been wanting to sew with double guaze and Japanese fabric  –
Now I can say I’ve done both.
Changes for next time :  Lengthen the shirt – shorten the sleeves


Other random tidbits for you:

I’m also over on the Craft Apple blog!  Hello Craft Apple friends!!! 

This morning I tried to get into a really nice Beamer after dropping Kyle off at summer camp.
I apparently confuse Chevys (the rental…too much story) and BMWs.   😀 

I’m currently pondering if teeth are really truly necessary.

    Looks great! I keep telling myself I should make a shirt for ME but I never get brave enough. I just know I’d have to make so many alterations that I chicken out, but maybe I just will try it. 🙂

    Woo hoo! Look at you, hot mama! Your shirt looks fabulous. No reason not sew your entire summer wardrobe 🙂 xoxo

    Great shirt! Teeth necessary? Well, no, but you’d be very sad with fake ones! Having tooth woes?

      I believe that would be tooth #15 that is causing all the ruckus around here. Figure maybe I should just kick it out before it riles up the others 🙂

    Love the shirt! Good luck with tooth #15….. you know how I feel about them & the crazy people who work on them! 🙂 Thanks for showing my little doggie on your Craft Apple guest blog spot! So nice! It is a really fun post & I can not tell you how fun it is to see something I made on there! 🙂
