WIW: Corona couture

I've made a few t-shirts during these days at home. This one is from one of my favorite patterns, which enables me to use beloved remnants from past projects. I wore this outfit at home and on a bike ride to the post office and to stop for coffee and a treat to go.

The outfit: Pieced t-shirt in purple plaid-like sweater knit, plus solid purple and gray-and-cream-striped jersey knits (made by me); dark boyfriend jeans (AG), gray metallic lace-up booties (Homers).

Thanks for looking! Any thoughts you wish to share are appreciated.

    Thanks, everyone!
    Jenn, right, I'm not wearing scrubs or even a mask. Although I did make some simple masks for DH and I to wear, from t-shirts. And, thankfully, I have escaped the virus so far.

    Love it all! That tee would probably be fab under a jean jacket too.

  • Firecracker replied 2 months ago

    Aw, thanks, everyone! Your sweet comments make my day!
    Great idea, Joy. I even have a white jean jacket that would be good with it.

    What a fun mix! Very creative and fun! The cuff on the jeans in a great styling touch, too!

  • Staysfit replied 2 months ago

    Firecracker! The tee looks amazing!  It looks impeccable with your modern jeans and booties.  I think you should start a business making stylish masks out of your scraps!

    Looks great - I think it's been a while for me looking on her for more than just a few mins. because I just realized your hair is short again and I like it.  Hope all is well with you and your family.

    My regret at not learning to sew is increasing exponentially, seeing this photo! That is just fab!

    Love it!

  • anne replied 2 months ago

    Clever! Are the pieces woven or knit!

  • Karie replied 2 months ago

    I love it, and I love that you used pieces from other projects to make the shirt. Your hair looks great too!

  • Firecracker replied 2 months ago

    Anne, the fabrics are knits.
