|Don't they look AWEsome with my sweat pants! :P|
|I'm in love with long sleeves!|
While it was a total stash busting project I must admit the next one isn't totally. After assessing my stash and
online fabric shopping while I was depressed since my blood sugar was high AGAIN making some carefully thought out shopping decisions I bought this lovely dot fabric that I knew would match perfectly with the purple in my stash.
|Beautiful dots! Now all I need is some teal to go with it.|
|Huzzah for long sleeves!|
|Neckline binding could be a bit tighter, or wider to give a turtleneck effect.|
So there you have it! Two tops that decreased my stash and replaced my boring RTW. I had this great idea to have side by side photos of RTW next to my creations but I already chopped up my RTW shirts into little girl skirts.
Cut off the offending parts, draw a picture, sew neckband as waistband. Presto skirt.
Cut off arms and taper down. Sew up holes in side. Presto skirt.
I'm almost embarrassed at how easy and how terrible these look in photos. They were made quickly for little girls to be comfy and wear around the house. Since they didn't want to take them off I consider it a win even if it isn't my best handiwork.
How about you? Anyone else taking the Foundation Garment Challenge? Do you have any great stash busting ideas?
