Danesha from  Classyfied Life So first I must say that this entire challenge has been just that...a challenge! Two weeks ago there was hurricane Irma and I was blessed enough to not lose power and then I went out into the aftermath to capture some photos of my submission.

Made By A Fabricista: A great tee shirt pattern – or three!

Hi fellow sewists! It’s Andrea  @happy.things.here and I’m here today to talk tee shirts!  I love a good tee pattern…or two…or four. Despite having more than enough of them in my pattern collection, I’m always up for trying a new one. And I also have my favorites and tried and trues (TNTs). I love the versatility of a good tee pattern – dress it up with fancy fabrics to make a work wardrobe piece, use a high quality solid to add some basics, or anything in between.

When you think of Spring you think of florals, colors and lighter weighted fabrics. This fabric is giving it all. I love the bold large scale print flowers up against the black canvas. The fabric is viscose challis fabric so it has a natural soft drapey feel to it which makes it great for spring dresses, skirts, jumpers and blouses.  For this project I chose to create a version of my KnowMe Spring 2023 Jumpsuit pattern. It had the retro vibe to compliment this fabric and I love the way it turned out. I omitted the trims for this make and made it one solid fabric. This pattern has a zipper at the crotch and comes with buttons at the bodice. I switch
