I think my black t-shirt is trying to break up with me. Seriously. You know when a relationship is new and you can’t wait to spend time with each other? When you see each other in a crowd and you know- pray- hope that they are coming toward you- that you are the one they want to be with? Then you wake up one day, eager to see that one that you love- that fits you, that understands you and they are just ‘meh’ about you? They start avoiding you- they hide behind the goosey cardigan and hope that you will just pass by- when they used to be so happy when your hand would linger over them, then slowly slide them off of the velvet hanger and ………
I can’t go on. I feel like our love has died. But little t-shirt, you knew what I was- you knew I sewed without a plan! Don’t deny it, yes, you knew there were other t-shirts and cardigans bought on a whim- but you knew how heavily I’d rely on you for the support you give- little t-shirt- you complete me!!!
So I guess we need to spend some time apart. I’ve unconsciously created a capsule wardrobe of things that only match you. But you want me to see other people and I get that. I’ve become clingy, needy and there was that business with the ranch dressing last week- you don’t forgive easily.
But first, you need to fulfill your destiny and attend a few more functions with me- WHAT ABOUT PROM BLAINE???? WHAT ABOUT PROM???
Also you are the only thing that matches my last 5 projects.
Let us once more climb onto our all-terrain donkeys and descend deep into the VALLEY OF THE UNBLOGGED!!!!! Why are these unblogged? They come out of the closet all the time! They are nice little staple pieces.
Well, it’s about shame. I’m embarrassed by my failure to make a full ensemble for them- I love and resent the black t-shirt that I wear all too often. Also, I can’t get excited about blogging anything that contains the sentence: ‘I wear it with a black t-shirt from Target’. It feels like I’m not really bringing it!!
No excitement at all. Anyhoo…..
Here’s Burda 6770– my foolish Gwen Stefani crossover pants. So comfortable! I think I overdid the crossover part, I didn’t want it to look like I just had my knickers were in the proverbial twist. But since I throw on a Target cardigan and the black t-shirt, I’ve never blogged it. Whats to say? I’m not a blogger of staples.
Here’s Vogue 9020. I bought it for the top, but haven’t found just the thing yet. So during a Textile Hoarding Closet culling, I grabbed it and actually put in a zipper. Yes, I can do that. I honestly can! I did make a change to this- I moved the zipper to the side seam and deleted the back seam all together. I find a side zip lays better on me- than the center back of a skirt- I get a stegosaurus ripple sometimes. Ignore the crazy eyes- Mutty was tickling me.
See how fab it looks with this black t-shirt and cardigan from Target?!
Now this one’s a twofer! The vest is Butterick 6077– fully flippin’ lined too. See another thing I can do that you’d never guess, right? It goes wonderfully with my black t-shirt and a skirt I love- Simplicity 1662, but it’s a simple elastic waist with a cross-over, who needs a review of that? Isn’t it great with this little black t-shirt???
Here’s my Studio 54 blousey jacket. Its Butterick 6065– does it make you think of the ‘POP Music’ video? It does me. Sadly, it matches nothing. That’s why the fabric was just a closet decoration for so long- anything I try with it looks sort of dated and weird. Maybe I can make a nice Olivia Newton John headband with a black t-shirt!!!!!
Wait!!! Don’t click delete!!! I have so many more pieces!!! I’ve got a boat neck black t on hold at Kohl’s! Don’t leave!!!!!!!
Ok, I know you all feel like Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion in the poppy field- soooo sleeeepy. I hope you’ll tune in next time for a passionate blog post about all the things that match only my black denim leggings! Now where are they hiding……….
