KCWC - Day 4/5

I don't have very much to show for the last 2 days. I am still dealing with illness at home and that is really slowing me down.  I have been getting in an hour of sewing/ drafting /cutting time but that's about it. Just don't have much energy. 

Here is what I did manage to finish, a pinafore style top. 

Because of the scale of the print I didn't want to use a pattern that was too busy. The simple lines of a pinafore work well for this. I also didn't want to cut the fabric too much so it's cut from just 2 pieces of fabric, front and back, and seamed only at the shoulders. Simple and straightforward.  I loved the fish print when I saw it in the fabric shop even though there is a lot more pink in it that I care for.  I'm not a fan of pink. not even a little. But somehow this print pulled me in so I bought half a meter. I've used basically all of it.  

 I don't think it's very noticeable that the back is basically a bit on the bias because the fish are kinda masking it. 

It may be simple but I am happy with it. Plus it was a bonus not to have to deal with buttonholes or zippers and it's reversible. (not that I think I'd ever NOT want to see the fish.)

Are you sewing clothes this week?
