So, I unpacked all my shirts, considered which ones I'd wear the most, and then packed just those shirts. A couple really cute shirts didn't make the cut. Like this one:
Once I finished sewing the shirt I tried it on then worried that maybe it was a little too swingy. I felt like it was baggy and made me look shapeless. Thus, when I needed to pick shirts to leave home this one got booted out of my pack pretty quick.
Fast forward 7 months and my mom was coming to Romania to see me. I'd begun to grow a little tired of the clothes I packed at the beginning of the year. So, I decided to have my mom bring me some "new" clothes - such as this shirt.
The first time I wore the shirt after my mom brought it to me I wondered what I'd been thinking in January. The shirt wasn't baggy at all! Rather I found it to be just the right amount of "swingy"
|Yes, just in case you were wondering, this shirt "twirls" well|
Now this is one of my favorite shirts! It gets worn a couple times a week!
I already plan on making a couple more from this pattern when I go home!
But before I start compiling too much of a project list, I still have 6 more weeks to go on World Race. To keep up with what I'm up to during this last month and a half check out my World Race blog!
I'm looking forward to being back home with my family (and my sewing machine!), but right now I'm really excited to see what God has in store for me these last 6 weeks! He's taught me so much over the past 10 months, and I know He's gonna continue to do more in my life - both on the Race, and after it!
