For my birthday yesterday, I made myself a cherry pie.
It was delicious with perhaps the best pie crust I have ever made. Credit goes to my How to Cook Everything book.
But the real “To Me; From Me” present was a shirt I made.
Pattern = Simplicity 5756
Alterations = Lined the bodice and skirt portions of the shirt since the main fabric is see-through (and nobody needs to see what color brazier I’m wearing or how cute my tummy looks), drew up the elastic tighter than instructed to hide the bra straps and opted to tie the bow in the front
Fabric = unknown material; it was brought back from India by my best friend
Lining = satin fabric
Time frame = 1 long weekend
Thankfully, there is room for growth in this shirt. I think I’m going to need it.
