I decided to squeeze in on the last challenge for this round of Project Sewn. I rarely get to sew for myself, and especially with Halloween coming up (rapidly) I wanted to make sure to do something selfish before committing to any costume making for kids.
This challenge was: Signature Style.
First I should tell you a little about me and my style. I am all about comfort. I walk around in clothing that could be mistaken, easily, for pajamas. “Yoga pants” worn when one does not do Yoga, is just lounge wear. I also wear fuzzy slipper socks all the time. Even outside, with shoes.
The second thing is versatility. I am a minimalist. I do not believe in owning things that do not fulfill a purpose. I own very few clothes, but the ones I do have get worn. I love when I can take a basic top and give it many looks~ dress it up by adding a scarf, or a strand of beads or a nice jacket.
I also love being warm.
Now that you have a little background info, this tunic-style comfy top will make more sense.
Please excuse the photos. Making the outfit is the easy part. Getting in front of the camera, and have it look flattering, is downright difficult.
I started with the Seafarer Top, added length, and long sleeves. These are no ordinary sleeves, though. They have a secret.
Thumb holes! I am considering doing this to all my shirts. I wear these wrist warmers all the time, anyway, why not make them a part of the actual shirt!
I am not quite sure what is up with my eyes.
Anyhow, I now have a very functional comfy versatile shirt that I will be wearing with lots of accessories… or none at all.
