It was time for another birthday shirt, but this year I decided to mix it up a bit. Letters and Arabic numerals were fun. Roman numerals were more fun. But Elvish numerals are even more fun than that. I googled around to find the number "13", since Elvish is not my first language. Apparently, their numbers are in base-12, as opposed to our base-10. Who would've thought?
I thought an atom shirt would also make a great statement piece.
Peter readily approved of both shirts, but did note it wasn't a terribly correct model of an atom...
The shirts are from the Jalie 2918 pattern, which I've made umpteen times. 17 times, actually!
I threw in two more shirts in the v-neck version of the tee, mainly to use up some of this weird chest-stripe polyester pique. Now, you have to have exactly the right size of shirt in order to get that chest stripe, or else you have to waste a lot of fabric. It makes me curious about the manufacturing process of these fabrics...do they create separate runs of the fabric for different shirt sizes?
I just let the stripes go where they ended up, for some interesting effects.
Last up, some out-of-the ordinary sweatpants - Cheveyo Cargo Sweatpants (Ottobre 1-2012-31). Let me tell you, just about when I was trying to make cargo pockets out of sweatshirt fleece !!! I was thinking this was a terrible idea. But now that they're finished, I'm quite pleased with the result.
They have a bit of a skinny pant shape, and of course all the pockets are very fun. The fly is faux. Peter was very thrilled with these pants.
