Anyway, back to the post at hand, this isn't about clothes for my kids, it's about clothes for me. In my December Girl Charlee Knitfix I received 2 yards of a lovely rayon spandex blend. It has a beige background with a black, floral print. It's buttery soft and I LOVE it! I loved it so much I was afraid to cut into it.
Finally, in February, I gained enough courage to introduce it to my scissors. I thought a 3/4 sleeve Lane Raglan would be cute.
I cut the sleeves off a shirt that didn't fit my arms well and used them for sleeves (yay, no hemming the sleeves).
Instead of a band around the bottom, I added three inches to the length and hemmed. I used a knit stabilizing tape to give the hem a little weight.
I really like how it turned out and to make things more official, I added a bias tap tag.
I've worn this shirt quite a bit before the weather turned warm. I like it!
