check off my To-Make list. Now Jess probably only had about 2 dozen more patterns for me to try! : )
This shirt was a bit of an experiment for me. If you ever happen to take a peek in my closet, you would not find a single piece of patterned clothing in the bunch. I wear jeans and a solid color V-neck tee pretty much every single day. (when I manage to get out of my pj’s of course!) It’s very boring, but I haven’t updated my wardrobe since before Reli was born. Back then I worked at the GAP, so jeans and tees were pretty much my uniform.
Hopefully I’ll get to upgrade once I lose this baby weight, but I digress…
Because I never wear prints myself, I have the most terrible time picking coordinating fabrics for my sewing projects. I see tons of really cute fabric choices around bloggy-land, but can’t seem to manage it for myself. So when I decided on this large floral for the body of the shirt, I took it along to the fabric store hoping something cute would jump out at me.
The guy at the cutting table looked at me like I had lost my mind when I told him I was going to use these two fabrics together, but I was sure it was fate when I found those little flower buttons that match perfectly!
I kinda like it, but I have to keep telling myself that kids can wear “busy” without looking too odd.
So what do you think? Did I do a good job, or should I just stick to my solids from now on?
