There was to be a sale…an EPIC SALE! I could hardly wait…
So there is this one fabric store that I mainly stay away from only because it is too amazing. There are 1000’s of yards tempting me to start 1000’s of different projects so I just steer clear. That is until they have a really good sale!!
I was not the only one banking on the deals as the cutting counter was already getting a huge line only 30 minutes after opening their doors.
What to choose? Naturally, my over loaded brain decided quantity is best so I purchased 1 yard of my favorites, hoping to figure out the details later.
The One Yard Top:
I scoured pintrest trying to find an easy 1 yrd pattern, but I just kept going in circles. Finally I took out my roll of muslin and probably went through 5 yards trying to figure a good fit for a basic summer tank. I think I nailed it. The trim is done with double fold bias tape so that detail makes this shirt quick and easy to sew.
I love the fit of this top and how it flows nicely with cotton material and the best part is there are no closures. This is a winner and will help me dress with a little more style than my worn out t-shirts. I’ll have a few more like this on the To-Do list.
My revelry is that I am always trying to purchase as little material as possible. This seems contrary to the notion of having enough material on hand; but I have found I’m more creative when there is fabric shortcomings or a hasty clip of scissors. One day this kind of thinking will get me in trouble, I know this, but for now it’s a fun way to sew.
What are your sewing guilty pleasures? Does anyone else self sabotage their plans? Thanks for checking out my project!
