Dumpster Lydia

Ann Arbor, Michi...






I found three jersey knit banners in a Dumpster this spring. Perfect for testing out knit patterns! No big modifications on my Lydia, although I had to add a back seam to avoid the logos on the banner. The cheap fabric is surprisingly comfortable. It feels like I’m wearing pajamas. Next time I’ll try one size down with a full bust adjustment to tighten up the bottom of the shirt.

    Awesome, I’m so glad to hear you went dumpster diving and made a shirt out of it! It makes me excited to keep my eyes peeled for great fabric in unexpected places :)
