It has been a long week, and it is only Tuesday. Testing always drains me. Finding out that C has pneumonia drained me a tad. After dinner, I decided the spreadsheets and research could wait. I. Needed. To sew. A quick and easy project was required. The Monaco Tee pattern has been sitting in my “new patterns waiting to be tried” basket for ages. I don’t even remember buying it, that’s how long it has been. One hour from start to finish. That is one hour from deciding to use the pattern to snipping the last thread.
Sorry, but there will not be a modeled photo tonight. I am already in my jammies and have no interest in putting on real clothes until tomorrow morning. It looks better on me than on the dress form, but the dress form is all you get for now.
This is a fantastic alternative to the basic t-shirt. The neckline makes it just a bit more special. It would be lovely under a jacket, but pretty enough to wear on its own. I plan to wear it tomorrow with a pair of charcoal pants. Because the air conditioning is unpredictable at school, I will toss a little black cardigan in my bag.
Since, I know someone will ask, the fabric is a lycra jersey knit from JoAnn Fabrics. It is buttery soft, so nice that I was surprised to find it at JoAnn’s. The color is deep raspberry, again, so beautiful that I was shocked to find it at JoAnn’s.
I will try to post a modeled photo soon. It will not happen tomorrow because tomorrow is wildly overbooked. The impending craziness is what prompted me to make a new something, a little treat.
