To feel better about myself and my designing abilities today, I decided to take it easy and make two knit shirts. Easy because I've made it before and I know my pattern is perfect for me, so no alterations or changes needed.
The first shirt I made is out of a knit jersey I bought at Joanne's. I love the print on it. It reminds me of Oscar de la Renta. I added the lace detail on the neck, because, well I'm a sucker for lace. My body looks much better today than it did yesterday.... the power of good design.
The next one I made is out of a black ponte knit I bought online. I bought about ten yards of this stuff (had a coupon) and this is the first time I used it.. but not the last! I LOOVEE ponte knits. The best, most flattering material I've ever worked with to date.
I added my fabric flowers on the neckline because I can't live without embellishments. It's a crime against femininity.
