How I spent my Saturday...

Well, this is how I spent Saturday. Ryan has multi-cultural day on Monday at school, so I whipped up a black pair of track-pants on Thursday evening, and this shirt today. When I say whipped, I cut out a pajama pattern top and off-set the opening for the shirt. When I sewed it all up, I hadn't taken into account shaping around the neck and had to "wing it" with bodgey-ing up an extra little bit on the collar. Fortunately, all that is hidden behind the 8 (yes EIGHT) metres of ribbon/embroidered wool tape I used to do the front, sleeves and bottom of the shirt.

Not too unhappy with it! Here's the one I tried to "copy": Russian suit for a boy

Oh, and it appears Michelle tagged me and I'm a total slacker and didn't notice until now!
