Thanks Adidas!

Hello Readers. How are things with you? Are you working from home or part of the slow opening? I am back at work and hoping for the best. I am still sewing because I go crazy if I don't sew. Today I made a very simple, sporty dress.
What am I looking at? No idea.
I loved the bright blue of this Adidas shirt. It was that soft, moisture wicking fabric that is great in summer heat. It didn't look that great on me like this. I thought about making a shirt of some sort but then I saw the length and decided to make a casual, sporty dress.

Adidas says, "climalite  keeps you dry". That sounds good to me!

I took the shirt in a lot in the sleeves and the chest but left the bottom full and loose.

It was quick sewing. The shirt is stretchy so I used a zigzag stitch for the new side seams.

I kept the sleeves as long as possible because I am pale as a ghost and burn easily. Sometimes it is nice to have sleeves to cover my arms from the sun. I could try to tan but then I will be red as a beet. There will never be a tan. It's just not going to happen. The choices are pale or burnt. That's it. So, this dress will be useful.

Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.

Hi Chickie, we are still locked down in California. Hubs and I are retired, so life doesn’t look all that different, and golf is starting to open up. I have been sewing (many) face masks for family, friends, and neighbors. I am quilting an art quilt, determined to get that UFO finished. I think I pieced it two years ago.
