I’d rather sew

I feel like I haven’t sewed anything for months, then I looked at my blog and found out that my last project was only a little more than 2 weeks ago. But it is sure felt like a long time because I’ve been feeling so uncreative these last few days, and I really don’t like feeling that way.

To coax myself back into making things, I tried to make this little recycle project. This T-shirt was bought for ¥100 in a secondhand shop, I rather like the seventies feeling of it. But it was a bit too tight on me and it also turned out to have little holes on the hem. Basically I just chopped it off and used the pieces to make a new T-shirt for Sidra, nothing too fancy. I used a T-shirt pattern from a Japanese pattern book.

Well, I think it looks nice, Sidra got a new T-shirt, and at least I feel better about myself

Pattern is from simple+one.

    All of your creations are so cool! I wish I would have known you when I lived in Tokyo–very inspiring!
    I remember Rax; they used to have the most delicious milkshakes…

    Hi Novita,

    Have been pretty inspired by you lately. So have been following your blog very faithfully. Love to see what you’ve done. I’m lousy in clothes-making. Failed badly at the yukata. Turned to pro-tailors in the end. 🙁

    Nevertheless, keep up the good job. 🙂
