Bad planning?

The temperature fluctuates a lot here, so I planned on making a 3/4 sleeve tee. I was going to combine these two shirts to make a baseball tee

…but after chopping off the sleeves of my shirt, I was lost. I quickly realized that the polka dot sleeves would need to be wider to make a baseball-styled sleeve.

So what to do with a sleeveless shirt like this?

Fold in the upper portions to make tubes and sew, of course! I also revisited the Sesame Street fabric [from my Asian New Year project] and cut out a strip to make the straps of the new tank. Thread those through the tubes and BAM!

New tank top for the now ridiculously hot weather…but not really. When I checked the weather this morning, it was high of 83 :] SCORE!

Except it was rather windy outside…

But luckily winds don’t penetrate into the library. Yay for uninterrupted studying!

Side note: My microbiology professor states, “All great scientists have pictures of themselves staring intently at something.”

Case in point: Joshua Lederburg & Edward Tatum
