WIP Wednesday: Shirt off my back

Pickle took this picture, not bad if I do say so myself. Maybe he's going to be the next blogger in the family. Heaven forbid!

So, here's Simplicity 2898



















Now, this is what it was supposed to look like:












I will not beat myself up for such obvious mistakes, but I am grateful to have only spent $4 on the fabric. My buddy Robin says make another while the iron is hot. So, stay tuned.

It's cute. I don't see anything wrong.

I think it looks great! And I agree - make another one while it's still fresh!

Looks great to me.

I agree start another one real soon. The pattern do's and don'ts will be fresh in your mind.

Let us know how the second one turns out.

Hey! Great job! You know it never looks as good on a hangar (2 dimensional) as it looks on. (The model on the pattern jacket is a little too perky, though, kinda creepy.) My mother taught me to sew when I was eight. I've made everything, including a renaissance costume. Now, I'd rather quilt.

Hmm. Well it looks great to me. I'm just impressed that you're doing this stuf during the summer!

Looks good to me. Maybe I should try making me some new clothes instead of spending money at the store.
