WOW = WIPs On Wednesday
What do you think of my new shirts?
Last July I was fed up with not being able to buy shirts in fabrics I loved. Everywhere I went I was limited to pinstripes, beige and cream blouses. Of course, there's nothing wrong with any of these options, but as someone who loves fabric, I wanted a splash of colour in my wardrobe, especially for summer. And, of course, I'm spoilt for choice because I have a fabric mountain to pick and choose from. So I selected 5x fabrics that I loved from my stash and made a shirt pattern. Then I made the collars and different parts over several WOWs and finally this morning I am left with some button choices and maybe an alteration (I think I might slim down the sleeve on one of two so that I have 2x different styles), but otherwise, it's finishing touches only!
I'm already thinking of a few winter blouses for the colder months and have my eye on some prints that might suit the colder months, so I'll let you know if I find the time to start a new seasonal 'collection' !
I love them all for completely different reasons. The green flora print is my most complimentary, the pink rose shirt I'm wearing is a vibrant bunch of flowers that feels so refreshing on hot days and the dutch style painted roses against a black background was actually destined to be a table runner with matching napkins a few years ago.
Luckily I got distracted and never got around to cutting into what was destined to be my shirt!
Have you made any clothes from your favourite quilting fabric?
