Sewn by Wanett, Sown Brooklyn
Fabric: Polyester Knit
Wanett writes, “…This was the very first shirt I made. I was fearless in attacking it because the fabric I used was so stunningly inexpensive (read-cheap) and so wildly different (also read- cheap) than what I hoped it would be, that I had zero fear of wasting it. None. Whatsoever. I just whacked into it and stitched it together. I only needed to make one adjustment to the cowl’s length and it was done.
To cut the pieces, I used a method that I still use now. I simply folded the inspiration shirt and pinned it to the fabric, using it as a template for cutting. The first attempt at the sleeves was laughable, but I didn’t care. I had (and still have) a TON of this fabric… I took my construction clues straight from the top itself, looking at where things were attached and how to know how it should go together. I find that to be the best way to wrap my mind around what might work and what won’t. I think that anyone attempting something for the first time should put aside any fear of failure. It’s all practice. Who knows, you may have beginners luck like I did.”
