Guys. I sewed something.
For ME to wear.
This is kind of a break through. And then the even crazier part is that I took pictures of me wearing it and then put them here for you to see. I mean. That is just nuts. Have I mentioned that I just had a baby? True story.
In fact, we should probably talk about that because that’s really the whole reason I made this shirt in the first place. Having a baby is wonderful. Truly. I love my little boy so, so much.
But the belly. It could go. Unfortunately, it’s going to take a while to shrink down my mummy tummy, and in the meantime, I still have to go out in public occasionally and wear real clothes. And, folks, I am so over the maternity stuff.
So, there I am looking at all the clothes in my closet that don’t fit me with no money for new clothes, and I resolved to make something. I grabbed one of my husbands old dress shirts, and I remembered a refashion I had seen on Cotton and Curls (she’s amazing – check it out) that very much inspired this shirt. Here’s how it came together.
