From Remnant to Wardrobe
I am such a sucker for a good rem. I can't seem to pass by the remnant bin without something catching my eye. Last week after we went out to breakfast we ended up at JoAnn's. (Big surprise...I was driving...it was close) So while Tom was replacing a burnt out tail light on Sara's BMW, I was in the fabric store. All I came out with was a little knit print remnant, a little shy of a yard. Today I am proudly wearing it to work. The top is BWOF 8-2008 #109...a simple little raglan T-shirt. I lengthened it of course. When I tried it on before finishing the neckline I decided that I would prefer the neck be a little lower (you don't say that very often with BWOF!!!), so I tapered it down about an inch in front. I had Valentine wear it for me and then hung a necklace to measure the neckline. Worked like a charm and I am extremely happy with this top. This definitely will be one of my TNT for a simple T. Pattern Review to follow...need to get on my horse and ride to work now...Toodles!
