New Jersey (not the state)
These two striped cotton jersey pieces are what else I got at my impromtu stop at Hancock’s several weeks ago. They were both on the discount table and were the last of the bolt. The thinner striped piece is about a yard and the other is about a yard and a half (if I remember right).
The fabric is thin. Surprisingly thin for cotton jersey. It’s like the thin fabric they make t-shirts out of nowadays that I refuse to buy or wear. However, I’m seriously considering making the t-shirt version of the New Look top I just finished out of the wider striped fabric. I’m either going to look for a white jersey to buy that I can line it with, although I’m just not sure I want to spend any more money right now, or I can make it unlined and have to wear a camisole under it every time I go out in public.
Or I could scrap the whole idea and make pajamas. Fortunately, I have my always-present-when-something-exciting-is-happening-like-Mommy-taking-pictures-of-all-the-crap-I’m-usually-climbing-around-on assistant by my side.
“Ofelia, O Wise One, what should I do?”
“OFELIA! Hello! Come on, make yourself useful… Buy a lining, make it unlined, or make pajamas?”
“What?! You refuse to make a decision for me because everytime you suggest something I go a different direction and it hurts your feelings?? Good grief! Why you gotta be all sensitive about this stuff?”
Clearly, I need more human input (and possibly more human interaction…)
