Hello there, how’s your weekend going?
This t-shirt is the haul from the great jungle January safari swap organised by Anne of Pretty Grievances.
My safari buddy was BeaJay from the Road to Sew Wear. She sent me this lovely jersey.
(Check out what BeaJay made with the fabric I sent her. It’s a rather lovely top, though she is planning some modifications to it.)
There’s so much going on with this amazing fabric that I thought I’d keep it simple.
This is a Renfrew top, v-neck. Something went wrong with the neck band though, so I ended up turning it over and securing it with a twin needle. The bands at the sleeves and waist worked well. I’m very happy with this jungle january top.
I haven’t taken part in a fabric swap before. It’s good fun. BeaJay sent me a fabric I probably wouldn’t have chosen and at first I didn’t have any idea what I’d do with it.
By the end of the make though I completely loved the fabric. This t-shirt has got tons of wear and BeaJay and I have discovered we have very similar tastes in fabric.
BeaJay was very generous and I have tons of fabric left. What do you think of a jumpsuit? I’m thinking narrow legs. Or would that be just too much leopard going on?
Have you ever done the fabric swap thing and been surprised?
It pushed me out of my comfort zone and I end up with a favorite to wear. Thanks Anne for organising and thanks BeaJay for going on safari with me.
