It’s getting to be that time of year when it is dark a lot and thus not conducive to photographing candies and sewn items and the like. Oh well. Anyway, after a long break from my sewing machine (these things just happen), I finally had a chance to sit down and crank out this shirt. It’s a ripoff of an anthropologie shirt that baby adopter Melissa owns. Hers is made of a more lightweight fabric and has cute little cap sleeves. I wanted a winter version.

I got this fabric at the beginning of summer at the Fabric Depot outdoor sale. It’s a double-layer knit and is very cozy and warm. It is also on the thick side, which makes it kind of oddly clingy and made the placket a bit of a bear to deal with. The workmanship is not so great, but it is comfortable and casual, and hey, that’s my style (if you can even call it a style). I dig the mini ruffle.
On a different note, yeah, my brother got me a bunch of pens in Japan, but I just placed a substantial order with my beloved JetPens. I don’t really know what is wrong with me, but I do come from a long line of hoarders. Maybe that’s it.

    Your shirt looks great, cute buttons!
    We’re the other way round now, more light and more conducive for photos, it’s great, but I’m not looking forward to hot weather >_

    Wow. That looks so comfortable and totally stylish. Knits totally freak me out, so far I can only achieve nice sewing results with 100% quilters cottons…

    Tsk. My colleagues call me boring but that’s kinda what I would wear too.
    If I ever attempted to make one it’d probably be too warm before I even finish it

    Freaking adorable! Nice work on sewing up that knit, I usually end up wonky on my seams.

    Pens for everyone!
    I love seeing all of the pens. It’s like living vicariously through bloggerdom (sadly, my holiday knitting budget ate my buy pens budget).

    tiny ruffle rocks…sadly my evil job has blocked flickr so I am unable to check you out regularly and avoid working as much as I would like, but glad to see that you have returned to the sewing machine.
    I understand the pen hoarding, but have you lost any yet? That’s my personal fear of carrying nice pens around…

    Love this shirt! and it seems perfected fitted to you (in a not-super tight, good way). Is double-layer knit hard to work with?
