From A - Clearing Out the Cobwebs

One of the best things about moving is how it forces you to get stuff done. As I was packing for the road trip, I found more than a few projects that had been stuffed into bins and boxes and long forgotten.

Grey T-Shirt

Way back in November 2011, I took a T-Shirt making class to build on my virtually non-existent serging skills. I managed to finish everything except the hems during class (partly because I hate pressing hems and partly because the cover stitch machine was on the fritz) and then my nearly finished T-Shirt sat on my To Do list for the better part of two years.

Since I don't have a serger or a cover stitch machine. This was a must-do before leaving the city.

Seam Detail 

It took me a couple of tries to figure out the cover stitch machine but even with my incompetence it only took about an hour to finish this up.

Being Worn 

Love bamboo jersey I used for this. It is cool to the touch and silky smooth. A perfect basic for my summer wardrobe.


  1. Wow, your T is Terrific! I love it. Looks sew comfy!

  2. Wow! That looks like the most comfortable shirt in the world. Great job on finishing it up!

  3. Beautiful - much better than store bought. The material looks fabulous even through pics and great fit, you must be very pleased!!!

  4. Your shirt looks so professional! You did a great job! :)
