Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Men's t-shirt pattern

 I have finally made my boyfriend something. He can never find t-shirts that fit him correctly. And since I have so much fabric (sigh, its a curse and a blessing) in my closet. So I used some to make him some t-shirts. I used the Lisel and Co. mens metro pattern

 You can find the pattern here.
I have made him 2 now one was a tester to see how the sizing was going to work (so had to xxl for him- he is big and broad shouldered).

Finally some after photos!
Here's us at a festival! I was able to get out and enjoy the lovely weather and me not have to work.

The fit of the shirt is spot on.I was really happy with my sewing. I used a twin needle to sew all of the hems. I learned that loosing some of the tension in the needle helps a lot with not having bulging stitches on lightweight knits.
Now he wants more shirts, because he says that he is spoiled since this shirt fits him the best. He wears it everywhere. I can make him a black one since I have black knit left in my closet. But other than that all of my fabric is too girly. I said then I should have a free pass with buying more fabric, you know... to make him more shirts ;)

Pumpkin Spice Dolman with tribal knit

Just a little behind in blogging, life is busy. A good busy but at times a blur. I get some time to sew but really not much. There were no after photos for me to blog so I had a small hiatus on the blog here. Luckily I have several dones now that I am good for a few weeks. I love easy sewing with knits. I got this knit from a Girl Charlie Knit Fix that I had purchased off someone else. I loved the black and blue print fabric.

I decided to sew the pumpkin spice dolman from patterns for pirates.
I love the ease of the top. I opted for without the patches as my long arms never match where they need to go. Also I am a bit lazy
Here is my end product, which BTW I love!
Check out those batwings.
Not a super hi-lo hem, it is subtle.
From the front- fit is great. I will wear a tank top underneath so the fabric is just a tiny bit grabby b/c it is thin.
Paired with my faux leather leggings and some boots- this top is great! I will definitely make again!
