The state of my summer wardrobe is sorry, sad, embarrassingly ragged. Since the temps are in the middle to high 80s the situation is becoming critical if I want to leave the A/C off for a few more weeks. I have repaired or remodeled 6 pair of shorts and should get another summer out of them. The tops? I'm down to 2 shirts that are only fit for rags and don't want to be seen in public in them.
So I have gone through my fabric stash and found 8 pieces of fabric that there is enough yardage to make shirts with. I even found a pattern that I had never used rolled up in a piece of fabric. What could be simpler than a front, back and neck-facings? I have the first of the new shirts made.
dickeys of my youth. I'm waffling on this as it is more work (buttons and buttonholes) but it would add some more pizazz to the shirts.
And no, I did not use the shoulder pads! LOL I have football-player shoulders and neck muscles. Which is why I want to bring the neckline back around to the natural neckline.
I hope everyone is having a good day!
