Bringing my Twin Peaks Tee Back to Life
Pardon the delay in getting my Weekly Creation post out — I went to work today instead of yesterday and also forgot to bring my camera. Expect it tonight or tomorrow morning. In the meantime, here is a sort of a "vintage" project I did over the weekend.
This project can be considered vintage since I bought this Twin Peaks shirt about twenty years (!) ago at a Camp Beverly Hills shop in the Topanga Plaza. Even though I was only thirteen years old, I was a big fan of the show. Well, this shirt has always had a place in my heart and has survived countless moves and life events. It's been relegated to a sleep shirt, though.
Fast forward to this past weekend when I was packing for my first ever camping trip and I suddenly realized that I pretty much have no casual clothes anymore. In theory, I would have loved to dress in the 1950s camper style, but I actually wanted to be practical. So out came this shirt, my scissors and sewing machine. In twenty minutes I managed to resurrect this shirt by folding over and stitching the collar, cutting the sleeves, gathering them and reattaching them and stitching up the side seams. I was pretty happy with the outcome!
