Springtime and weddings

For Spring it sure has been warm here in Kentucky. In fact, several days felt like humid Summer already moving in. I really want to start sewing a few pieces of clothing for my wardrobe. But I wanted to start small, by adding to a plain tee shirt.

my pan collar tee shirt

I had been seeing so many tops with these cute collars. I like the Peter Pan style best and decided to freehand a collar pattern on paper. I used a printed fabric with a solid, heavier weighted fabric on the back.

I machine stitched the collar fabric together. Then to finish I hand stitched it to the tee shirt, to get it just right. I added a large button I had to the center where the collars met ~ and tad-da!

I also have two special projects to start up. One friend recently wed (Omedetou gozaimasu  Di-chan!) and another soon to be. I want to make something useful and washable: cloth napkins and matching coasters. I know, not terribly exciting but they will be used for sure.

I still have my 20% Off SALE in my etsy shop ~ so be sure to stop by! And I hope everyone is enjoying the Spring season and blooming flowers. (sale has expired)
