Heyyyyyy, so I have been doing a bit of sewing. I’ve been trying to “style up” a bit lately, but I realized that I am incapable and unwilling to stray too far from my comfort zone, so I decided that maybe I should just stick with what I like (comfortable, practical stuff, preferably in stretchy and warm fabrics) and just do something slightly different with them. I found this heavy, organic French terry at Rose City Textiles and made up my own pattern. I basically just took a T-shirt pattern and added on. The fabric is quite heavy, so wearing this does sort of feel like wearing one of those X-ray vests they have at the dentist, but you know, I kind of love those X-ray vests, so I am happy with the tunic.
Before I made this one I made a sample out of some vintage polyester. I’m not quite sure how to identify it. It isn’t double-knit because it is on the thin side. Did they ever have something called single-knit? It is also NOT stretchy at all. Anyway, IT IS AWESOME, and I love it. It feels like I am wearing some sort of plastic shield. Peter cannot touch it because it grosses him out. I find it is an effective wind barrier. I’ll take a photo of it one of these days.
