To get this:
Yes. I know. Different shirts. Doesn’t matter – I ripped out all the seems at the same time and choose the ugliest shirt to work on first.
Now those of you who know me well had better sit down, because not only did I wash the fabric before sewing, I also Ironed both the fabric and the shirts. Shocking!
Tomorrow, the cutting out.
