My shirt has gone to the dogs.

I have been quilting more than sewing lately.  But when I was buying quilt fabric  for 70% off at Joanns this week, I found some cute doggy fabric.  I thought it would be a good shirt for picnics, wine tasting, and other fun outings.  Red usually isn't my color, so this is a departure from the norm for me.  However, the thread that matched is called tomato 🍅, so not too bright.

Since this is going to be a "fun" shirt, I am using Simplicity 7330 which is my "go to" relaxed -fit shirt pattern.  This pattern has both a notched collar and a collar with stand.  I am making the collar with stand.  It will be medium size with short sleeves.

I also decided to use my Bernina 1120 to sew this shirt.  This is a wonderful machine that is smooth and powerful.

There were two events this weekend Joe and I attended.  One was a local artists show and the other was a wine tasting fundraiser for cancer patient transportation to the treatment center, which is an hour drive from us. 
Perfect places to wear my shirt.

Enjoying the event

Reading the label, must be good wine.
