The Great Shirt-a-thon of 2009 is officially done. 22 new shirts – checks, stripes, prints, solids, in a whole rainbow of colors. Now how's *that* for a wholesale re-stocking of the wardrobe? I shan't have to make a new shirt for me for *years*, which means I can spend my sewing time doing things altogether for fun, rather than utility. Not that this wasn't fun, mind you, but it was hardly frivolous – like the medieval beaded silk gowns I want to make for the 18" sad, gownless fashion doll that lives in the box with the odd bits of silk and satin I've been collecting for years.
Also, that much sewing in a short period is great practice; I'm much faster and more competent now than I was 2 months ago. Never a bad thing.
