this was prolly one of the easiest project i’ve done!
just buy 0,65cm of jersey fabric of your choice (in my case, i bought a Nanso fabric that’s on a special offer at Eurokangas), cut a hole in the middle of the width of the fabric (for your head), sew the side seams, leaving around 40cm holes (that’s 20cm on back + front part) on each side for your arms. done!
i made mine asymmetrical though, so i made the hole for the head not in the middle, but closer to one side, and then cut the bottom (hemline) somewhat diagonally and just left it like that (i didn’t sew the hemline..too lazy to bother!).
the “hardest” part was that i don’t have a serger/overlocker, so i mainly used the zigzag stitch, which turned out to be imperfect. but whatever. if it’s wearable, i’m happy :)
and the fun part is, i can wear it backwards too..so i can choose which shoulder part is longer than the other, left or right, hmmm…
