|Day 7: red Renfrew and denim Ginger with thrifted Roos |
...and a weird Barbie doll pose
Have I mentioned that I love this pattern? This was my fourth go. I used organic 100% cotton jersey from Fabric.com. It's really soft, and seems to wear very nicely.
Has anyone else found the neckline stitching with a twin needle to be a little hinky? I had to do several tension experiments to get it so that the front wouldn't bunch and the back wouldn't be completely loose and catch on things. Here are some perhaps-not-very-helpful pics of my topstitching:

|The inside view (it's the top row of stitches)|
Nonetheless, I can't wait to make more of these shirts.
Here are my MMM outfits for the last few days:
|Day 6: Renfrew in rust-colored nylon and Ginger in gray broadcloth|
(complete with wrinkles)
|Day 8: altered Banana Republic shirt with twill circle skirt |
and Bloch patent ballerina flats
OMG I CHEATED ON MMM!! I didn't technically make this shirt, but it's the only one I can wear with this skirt. And Zoe herself could hardly blame me for wanting this awesome skirt to see the light of May. Anyway, I did alter the shirt myself by shortening the bodice and sleeves, since BR apparently thinks that size-16 women are all 6' tall.
MMM is already 1/4 over. How crazy is that?
