Everyone has a strange quirk right? One of mine is the love of celebrating every holiday to its fullest, at least the major ones. Like Buddy the Elf for Christmas, but also Halloween, Easter, Valentines, and don't forget St. Patrick's day! Anyways, I always see these adorable seasonal fabrics and want to use them but really don't feel like making a quilt. So then I had a brilliant idea to use one of my favorite patterns, The Sassy Librarian Shirt, and make a subtle or not so subtle (depending on the cuteness of the fabric) shirt to wear!
I really tried to get this shirt done in time for the Fourth of July, which is kind of like the Christmas of summer (I would know, being a holiday connoisseur). I thought this "Sommer" fabric was a nice nod to the red, white, and blue and would be a good summer shirt. Then life happened and I could not for the life of me make any progress on it, simply from a lack of free time.
Then the Olympics rolled around and I thought maybe I could get it done in celebration of that!
Finally, the planets aligned and I got this blessed shirt done! I surprised myself and made the shoulder seams larger.
I also made the executive decision that although this pattern is precious and lovely, it is a time consuming one. Free time is something I don't have a ton of so I am going to stick with my crazy holiday shirt plan, but use a less complicated pattern.
Happy Fourth of July! I love my home country.
