This is a project I have been aiming to try and make for ages and simply never got round to it - the sewing pile just grows!

But here it is! Super simple.

I took a baseball top and cut it into half creating a ‘crop top’ Then I pinned the skirt to the top and sewed into place. I over locked the the raw edges - if you dot have an over locker than ‘zig zagging’ the edges with a standard sewing machine works very well too.

This is one of my favourite pieces so far! So easy to make and wear 💚.

The 'Super' Super Hero T-shirt

I just about to take a couple of bags to the charity shop when i thought id have a last look inside them - I find throwing things out so hard. Firstly they them immediately seem to come back into fashion or suddenly you decide you cant live with out them. Yesterday I was brutal with myself - in or out and when they were an out they went straight into a bag for charity - no looking back.

I struggles with throwing t-shirts out because I reuse them so much but these two t-shirts were too small and even i hear in the ;fashion news’ small , cropped t-shirts are on there way back… I’m 44 and not sure if I’m up for that look now.

But it suddenly occurred to me that two t-shirts could easily make one. All I had to do was cut them into two and sew them together. Obviously being small I didn’t want to cut them in half - see below for how cut them them.

taking the two larger sides I them turned them inside out and sewed them together.

And that was literally all I did. I have an over locker machine so used this but as t-shirt material doesn’t tend to fray, a simple sewing machine would also work.
