Still no dino plushies. It was raining the whole day yesterday so I stayed at home and made something else for Sidra.

The T-shirt is recycled from my old T-shirt dress, bought in 2006 in Indonesia. My hair was pretty short at the time! The picture was taken in my office’s studio, hence the black background (the advantage of working in a fashion magazine).

Actually the dress was still in decent condition, but I’ve never worn it anymore. Sometimes I feel a bit guilty when I don’t wear something that I didn’t make myself. Is that strange?

The material is stretchy but a bit thick, and it would make a good T-shirt for cooler weather. I used the same pattern as the striped T-shirt.

T-shirt pattern is fromĀ simple+one

      Haha glad that you liked the hair though!
      Actually I used to always have short hair, sometimes shorter than that. I started to let it grow a few months before moving here, 3 years ago :) Now I can’t cut it short again because Sidra will be angry, he likes me in long hair!

    I liked the dress, but I think that the fabric will have a better life with this T-shirt. It looks nice on him. You are going to have him become a rockstar!
