My inner child jumps for JOYYYYYYY!
I’m on the front page at The SEW WEEKLY!!!!!!!!!
This project was inspired by a childhood photo, visit my blog for the rocking 80s inspiration!
Fabric | Stretch Rayon Blend Jersey Knit
Pattern | BurdaStyle Lydia variation (my TNT tee pattern and the best sewing related $1.00 I’ve ever spent), I basically winged it, using Lydia for the armholes and neckline mostly. And this tutorial for the shaping of the bottom front.
Year | Current, but inspired by my rocking 1980s childhood pic, lol
Notions | Thread, I didn’t interface or reinforce anything.
Time to complete | A few hours, including the time spent writing out my steps for about 30 mins before I got started.
First worn | On an outing with my hubby and to pick up the kids from school.
Wear again? | Yes! I love it!! It’s dead comfy. I have plans to make a few more.
Total price | $18 for 3 yards of this fabric. It’s thin, so the bottom fronts, back and faux wrap portion are all cut double. I will write out some construction deets soon.
