nobis opus splendeat: we need more glitter

While the “death grip on summer sundress” was a desperate attempt to squeeze as much out of summer as possible, this shirt is more of an acceptance that summer is coming to a close and autumn is well on its way. In the morning it can be worn to work with a light jacket or wrap when there’s a chill in the air and it smells like there’s a hint of front on the grass. In the afternoon it can be worn as a strapless shirt to get just a little more September sun on your shoulders before it disappears for the winter.

This was my second shirring project. As you can see, I learned from the last one and use a single elastic thread instead of starting and stopping at every row.

This was a 4 way stretch material which I thought might not work, but it has a beautiful drape and it’s super soft and comfy!

I like to just cut big squares, so I usually just use the entire width. The top is one 15 inch piece, the bottom is 20 inch pieces, and around the very top just folds to the inside to hide all the raw edges.
