Recently I decided it was time to try some healthier eating habits and find my figure again under all this fluff, so I've started a slow, and somewhat bland journey. Since the "exercise" I can do is really limited - changing my eating habits is probably the most efficient way for me to lose some weight.
Then GreenStyleCreations posted a tester call... and I thought, well, maybe this is a good place to start - I NEED some new shirts, and I'd love to have a *before* *after* deal that I can do with the same style shirt in like 6 months .... Do you know when the last time I bought a shirt for myself was? Um.... I think before Connor was born LOL
So despite hating picture of myself, I signed up, and I am SO glad I did.
Goes from sizes XXS to 3XL
Lightly fitted shape that totally flatters the body.
Short, 3/4, or long sleeve options
Ruched sleeve and/or side seam options
Rounded or straight hem options
Scoop or traditional neckline options.
Optional elbow patch shapes
Wow, laid out like that, there really are a lot of options for this shirt!
My first shirt took me a little over an hour to print, tape, cut, sew. I did the scoop neck, 3/4 sleeves. I used some of my yummy Doctor Who c/l Knit from Nikki at The Fabric Igloo (giggle at the name- they are in Canada), and cut the body out from a t-shirt I bought on clearance from Walmart for $3. This is the first one:
|I love this shirt so much that you all have to see my pictures!|
And then I made one for my friend Heather, in a size medium.... also cut from 2 clearance t-shirts (woohoo! for turning to ugly huge shirts into one awesome one). Heather makes a much better model for my 100th item!!!
|She doesn't like this picture - I think she looks fab!|
|Do we love my totally accidental pattern centering???|
The pattern is available here on the Greenstyle Creatiosn website. AND today and tomorrow the code "centerfield" will get you $1 off the already awesome price!
