Birds of a Feather
I could hardly resist the title. Two is not quite enough for a flock but perhaps three will be. Moving two sizes down from the last Tiny Pocket Tank I found a nearly perfect fit. And I was a little surprised (though I had been looking at them both for many days thinking of these tanks) to discover I had picked two bird printed fabrics.
This one is vintage from a gifted stash. The binding is part of the immense amount I got at the beginning of my sewing all those years ago. This shirt cost me nothing but time to make.
There was exactly the right amount of the binding to do the neckline. If I do say so myself, I think it is very anthro. I still want to drop the darts an inch. These children have certainly rearranged my body but I am getting used to it and trying not to mind too much. All part of growing up, accepting the changes for what they are instead of fighting back so hard.
Also, perhaps it is time to clean my mirror?
