I was perusing the remnants bin at the fabric store a few days ago when I found a yard of black satin, and I of course I chucked it into my cart the way I always do when I find fabric on sale that I think I might possibly want to use some day. The unusual part was that I started fooling with it so soon after I bought it.
My husband gave me a beautiful dress form for Christmas, and I had been anxious to start playing with it as soon as possible. I drafted up a pattern for a strappy shirt, and started sewing away. It turned out a bit strappier than I intended, and on a whim I made the hem in the back slightly pointy, but I really like how it turned out.
