Cross one off the list

Remember my list? Well, I get to cross another item off, and I like it!
Green shirt from a vintage pattern. It's all cut out, just waiting to be sewn. I think I am making excuses not to work on it because it has an invisible zipper and I am kind of scared of it.


I bought this pattern on Ebay a while ago.
The reason that it took me so long to make is because I was procrastinating on putting in an invisible zipper. And it turned out to be no big deal, so I stressed for nothing! 


The finished product.


A close up.


I learned a lot from making this shirt. I had never used an invisible zipper and I had never used bias tape. From the outside the bias tape looks good, but the inside is another story. Oh well, live and learn, right?

  1. Invisible zippers are my favorite! LOL I'm glad you overcame your hurdle. I love how the illustration on the envelope looks like Elizabeth Taylor from Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. The designs look wonderful too! I hope you make them all :)
