A New Lease On Life
I delivered 20 masks yesterday, so now it's time to do household tasks. When I made Jack's shirts I tried earnestly to choose fabric for the pockets and collar that would last as long as the shirts themselves. It's not always easy to tell - I failed! So today I've replaced the pockets on one of the shirts. I pondered the collar for a while. I really didn't want to have to undo the neck seam, facings et cetera. Instead I cut one layer of the green fabric and sewed it on top of the original one. I think it'll pass muster.
There is another shirt that is wearing out before the pockets:
Of course that means I'll shortly have to make another shirt from scratch!
