I was actually going to make it gingham print but after painting the horizontal stripes I ran out of paint and decided I would just leave it as is. The color and width of stripes is as close as you can get. Freaky. And somewhat embarrassing that I have a shirt that matches my towel.

Whilst on a thrift trip a few months ago I spotted this yellow striped shirt. Bold stripes, yellow... looked like a nice summer t-shirt (it actually had sleeves but I chopped them off). After I brought it home something seemed familiar about it... what was it? Oh! I had made a dish towel that looked EXACTLY like it.

I've done a tiny bit of sewing and thrifting since my newest little cutie was born. Sewing and thrifting are therapeutic to me I think, they help me de-stress if I've had a long day (or week).
Anywho, during some needed breather time one evening I stumbled upon a beauty. Just kidding. It was pretty bad but I liked that the top half unbuttoned (convenient for a nursing mom), the print was kinda cute, and it had pockets. The skinny: I took the waist up about six inches, removed shoulder pads, took in the shoulder width, and chopped the sleeves...and I love it! A casual (and comfortable) dress that is also functional.
In other news I am dangerously close to actually finishing that quilt I started eons ago. Seriously I probably have like two feet of binding to finish...lets get on that.
