There’s nothing like quick gratification in sewing. Sometimes projects can seem to take forever it feels like it might not be worth it. But every once in a while, I can do something so quick and something I really like and it is wonderful! Take this shirt above. It is a maternity shirt I found on a clearance rack at Target for $4. I bought it because I knew I could make it summery somehow and for a few bucks I couldn’t pass it up.
So one night while my husband was studying in my office by me (he’s in flight school for the Coast Guard), I sat and made this. All I did was cut off the sleeves (I even left the edges raw because it’s truly a wonderful fabric and looked great that way) and then cut them up into rectangular pieces. Then I basted and gathered them, pinned them on randomly, and sewed in place.
I was done in like 30 minutes. And I really like how it came out.
