Look! I sewed something for my son!
Poor kid gets so very neglected in the sewing room.
This was a strike off sewing sample for Stardust Textiles. It is part of a new round of pre-sale fabrics that focuses on space shows (Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, Star Trek).
I was late to the tester group on this round, but there were a few more things that needed to get sewn up. I got a fat half of this bamboo lycra dance party coordinate, and I knew my son would love something with it.
He is 13, though, so I have use character prints with discretion. I decided to do the arms and some blocking in the coordinate using the Bram Raglan from Wardrobe by Me. I just cut the bottom section up a bit on the pattern and added a seam allowance. I made sure to make the pattern cuts at the same time so they would match at the side seams. Pretty easy pattern hack.
This fabric is so nice and soft and drapey. I love bamboo lycra. The black is an athletic mesh, so it is a pretty light-weight shirt. Perfect for summer!
Next was adding a vinyl thing to the front. It was obvious what was needed, really. 😉
I admit, I took a random image off of Google to do the cassette tape, so I won’t be sharing this cut file. I was too tired to draw my own cassette tape. Then, of course, I didn’t mirror the words to cut this out, so I had to recut the words. Hate it when I waste so much vinyl!
A fun, cool shirt for the dude. I hung it up on his closet door at about 11:30 at night, and he was wearing it in the morning!
The pre-sale on this closes on May 1. Check out the fun fabrics. I think the “Come to the dark side, we have cookies” panel is pretty cool, too. 🙂
