The big shirt

The  big shirt is finished.  I've worn this once and I do like the shirt over leggings.  I decided not to make any more of these or to keep the pattern.  I made an 8 going out to a 12.  The finished shirt on me would look better in a 6 going out to a 10.  I just didn't care for the look in the mirror, but I will wear this one until summer.

December is very slow for sewing, but very busy for our family.  School and work is very busy.  We're trying to get some honeydo's off of our list for work around the house.

 We got our tree last night and the branches are relaxing.  I plan to decorate it on Saturday.
 Macy has been practicing her long winter's nap.

My next project, an old Butterick( 2001) pattern, 3198.  I'm using fabric scraps to try out my first run.  My son says it looks like something the mom Ellen in a TV show called Wishbone would wear.  She was a librarian.  I guess that's not so bad.  I'm going to wear it with leggings and skinny leg pants when it finally gets done.
