So I’m thinking for Self-Stitched September, I’ll post pics of the outfits twice a week, plus when I wear something I haven’t blogged about,yet. What are you all doing?
This is one of the quick knit tops I whipped up over the weekend. The fabric I found for $3 a metre at Centrepoint and the pattern was from the big box-o-patterns.
It was really quick to put together – just two pieces cut on the fold with two pin tucks running along the front and back. I sewed it all with a narrow zig-zag which worked for the most part, although, the hems aren’t a masterpiece.
I had planned on getting some more sewing time in tonight but unfortunately I came home after my Chiropractor appointment to find not a single light in my house working. The electricity is on and all the appliances work, there don’t seem to be any circuit breakers tripped and I tried changing the lightbulb – all of which exhausts my basic knowledge of home maintenance. So this is all the light I’m working with right now.
Fabric: $4.50 (1.5m @ $3/m – Centrepoint Fabircs)
TOTAL COST: NZ$10.15 / US$7.17
