Doe clothes week?
Yep, I think so.
For this next week, I’ll be recapping some wearables or (in today’s case) clothing-inspired projects which use Doe.
Today’s featured project is Shirts!
(Exclamation point included because there’s nothing subtle or hidden about the inspiration–or enthusiasm–for this project.)
I think that fabric is fun and so is piecing. Mix the two together with a novel block design, and it’s got good times written all over it. This is probably why I’ve made so many Shirts blocks and projects since releasing the pattern 2 years ago. It’s certainly become one of my go-tos.
This version uses Doe and the coordinating Konas. I enjoyed making it because this type of project is always a good way for me to familiarize myself with the collection. I like figuring out how the different pieces in the collection can mix, as well as dreaming up what type of crazy wardrobe I can make.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a good picture of this project before Market, and the project is now traveling to different trunk shows, so above is only a shot of the project pre-quilted, but I do have this shot from the booth. I ended up quilting it with some big stitch in many different colors.
