Yo Yo Shirt in Action!
I wore my new shirt over my vacation. I was surprised to see how many people liked it! I thought it was pretty cool when they said it looked like it would fit in Anthropologie. I was tickled pink when they tried to give me their measurements. I LOVE this pattern! You should really try it! McCall's 5851. It is one of the easiest patterns I have EVER tried and I am glad to say I have made a bunch. I am excited to get it into my regular rotation of clothes.
The yo yo's were the most annoying part, but even those were easy. They just take FOREVER. I think you have to make somewhere around 70 or so of them! Maybe a little less, but it feels like a thousand! But it just looks so cute! And delicate, and crafty, which is my favorite. Also with the pretty silver flats I got for my sister's wedding. Yay for things I can wear more than once!
I have been wearing them with my new jeans, a pair of boot cut(which I would NEVER wear regular) jeans that I got from Target for $10 that I folded up and sewed into capris. I think they are SO much cuter this way!
I am so glad to be back home where I can create some more! Tomorrow is a supply picking up day and I am really looking forward to it. I love to dream about what I am going to make and wear. All my clothes don't turn out but I am so happy with the ones that do. It makes me feel like a crafty lady which is my favorite feeling of all.
