MMM14: Day 28

Image

I found this at a garage sale last summer for .50 cents. I liked the Bandana-ish print and figured I could make a cute top or sundress out of it.

Image

I put it on Minnie with the side zipper in the front. I like zipper front closers… I “De-pants” this with a few darts.

Image

To turn these size 16 capris into a top,  I had to really reshape them… then, I decided I wanted straps.

Image

I pinned this down and sewed it. And because my “straps” were actually a banded lining in the capris, I had to fold them in half and stitch it down. If not, the exposed white banded stabilizer/interfacing is what would show when wearing this new shirt properly.

Image
Pinned.
Image
Stitched.

I cut some length off the bottom, opting for a tunic. I finished the edge with a rolled hem on my serger.

Image

Not bad. It’s definitely “Memorial Day Cookout” appropriate 🙂

Image

It’d be rude of me not to sample all the food…

Image
Mmmmmmmm

Image

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day.

28 down, 3 to go
