The mess on the bed is obviously only to show how many clothes I have in my scrap bag and is in no way a reflection of my housekeeping.
Then a beautiful teal colored shirt caught my eye. But I pulled it out to find that it had some horrible accents on it and was way too short. And was very much so a grandma shirt.
I decided that I would use the teal shirt to lengthen the gray shirt's sleaves and bottom as well as add a bit around the neck. I could also make a nice accent while covering up the hole! So I started cutting. I folded the teal shirt in half and cut a few inches off the bottom and a few inches off the end of the sleeves.
I then cut a couple inches off the collar of the teal shirt.
Now, I could stop cutting now and start sewing. But I want to add an accent to the body of the gray shirt in order to cover up the holes. The granny shirt gave me the perfect opportunity to do this with it's
hideous wonderful accent. Yeah, I totally cut that off and will sew that onto my shirt and it will not look ugly. It will look wonderful. Simply because I want it to.
I pin it all in place and run off to sew it all up! I made sure to sew in the same place as the seam in the gray shirt so my additions wouldn't be as noticeable.
Time for some awkward bathroom selfies to show off my work!
Let me know if you have any questions!
