Project #117 – Sunnny Yellow T-Shirt
I made a whole outfit for hiking and then didn’t go. At first, we were reluctant to go because it was raining, and then we got too embedded in the afternoon’s activities to be much interested in going outside.
Still, I love the bright, sunny color. It’s a shade that’s bound to be easy to find in the woods, a plus should I take a tumble down a gully. The fabric came from the knits floor in Tokyo’s Tomato fabric store. I was a little apprehensive about using the last bits of such a nice cotton interlock. It’s going to be a long, long time until I will be able to get more.
The pattern is an old favorite, V2925. It only takes about an hour and a half to sew this shirt, and that’s including the time to rethread the serger at least five times. It didn’t seem to know what to make of the light, airy cotton knit and broke a thread every time I adjusted the tension.
