Today’s #memademay look is a bit of #covidcouture: I haven’t had tons of time to see since starting a company back in October, so during shelter in place I’ve been trying to spend a few minutes here and there finishing (or re-exploring) projects and also trying to sew my stash.

This shirt falls into the latter: a 2yd remnant I found at Cliffs Hardware in San Francisco over a year ago that I knew should be another Collette (ahem, @seamwork) #negronishirt. Working with a small amount of fabric forced me to be clever with the cutting layout (sorry grainlines!), but overall I couldn’t be happier.

I’m not sure I’d use this sort of fabric again: the pieces nature made things like felled seams impossible (who needs em!), and I broke more than one needle 😳, but it was worth it.
