Finishing a UFO

img_0910

While digging through my stash, I came acrossimg_0911 this yellow shirt all cut out and ready to sew. It has been at this stage for years. A long time ago, I purchased a denim skirt and wanted a yellow shirt to wear with it. I purchased the fabric and cut it out, but the sewing part just never happened. I don’t remember why the shirt was never completed, so when I found it in the closet, I decided to stitch it up. Unfortunately, it was cut out so long ago that my sloper pattern was not at the same stage that it is now, so as I started to sew, I was very unsure what my end result would be.

 

For the most part, I am happy with the results. The collar gave me some grief, trying to get it to lie flat. I sure like the changes I have made to my pattern since this shirt was cut out. In the day when this shirt was cut out, I was happy with just a plain yellow shirt, but not now with my embroidery machine. I embroidered Mickey Mouse on the shirt because I thought he would would be fun on the yellow, and I need something besides Snoopy in my wardrobe.

  1. so tell us about your embroidery machine. What kind it is and where you got it and how easy or hard it is to use. I am thinking I may need one.
