I'm all done with my first Alabama Chanin Camisole top! I love it.
I adored making it and I'm looking forward to finishing my more basic (by comaparison) corset and tank top.
I've worn it twice already. It feels kind of heavy, but I suppose it should since it is two layers of medium weight 100% cotton jersey. I'll bet the one layer tops will be a bit lighter to wear.
Also, we're in the middle of a heat wave right now and all I want to wear is billowy batiste and voile.
You can see some of the left over logos from the t-shirts at the back under arms.Proof that I made this out of recycled materials.
I think the pink is very bright. If I hadn't thrifted the t-shirt I probably would not have gone for such a "Barbie" pink.
I used the herringbone stitch for the bindings. It was pretty easy, but it used up a LOT of thread. I confess to using a much longer length of thread than prescribed for the binding, but I made sure to love that thread a lot longer than usual.
I'm trying to finish up a green tank and a charcoal grey corset, but I think I might do a bolero in blue with white stars embroidered on it. I'm belatedly inspired by the 4th of July and the star trend that's happening this summer.
