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.
