On Friday Gramma Bef came over with an arm-load full of unwanted shirts. "Ooh!" I said, pulling out one then another. "This one is nice! I'd wear this! Thanks!"
"Um, I thought you could use them to make some clothes for HARVEY?" she suggested with eyebrows raised.
"Oh. Right. Harvey."
You know... your son? Who you love? And make clothes for? REMEMBER?
Anyway, by dinnertime on Saturday I had him looking like a little Frenchman.
Thanks to the wonderful convenience of owning a serger, this piece only took me 30 minutes. I used the existing hem from the t-shirt for all four pieces, so alls I had to do was cut em out, serge the front and back neck-lines, and serge the whole thing together. No pinning except for the sleeves. And then he had a new t-shirt!
There's a little bit of scrap left over... I might make myself a headband. I know right? INDULGENT!!!!!
