I forgot to post a picture of this finished shirt!
Everything came together well and I added some bright red buttons to complete the look. D was interested in something colorful and he looks nice!
The graphical lines of this fabric turned out pretty cool.
We headed to Chicago to celebrate the 4th of July and while we are playing some tennis, most of the time is pretty relaxed and I have some free time for a unique project!
This all kicked off with a trip downtown for lunch with friends. We had lovely Giordano’s deep dish pizza. Here is a picture of the “D Special” – bell pepper, mushroom, and pepperoni.
From here we went over to a few streets that had fabric stores! We visited Fishman’s fabric that had an amazing clearance section and a wide array of upholstery as well as garment fabric.
I got a cotton for a shirt for D and some tie silk – all for $2.50 a yard!
We then visited New Rainbow fabric and Joann’s. At Joann’s I also got a simple navy polka dot cotton for my mother in law.
Her husband was the sewer in the family and they have a vintage 1970’s Singer! I decided to put my Moodu pattern making skills to the test and draft her a dress.
Stay tuned to see the dress! Hope you all had a great Canada Day and enjoy celebrating the 4th with families in the States. To other international visitors -I hope you’re all having a nice week too!!
